Manchester United have reportedly entered talks with Barcelona over a deal for Ivan Rakitic, according to Spanish outlet Sport.

Barcelona are reportedly willing to let the Croatian leave and want at least £34million for the 31-year-old.

Rakitic has been a peripheral figure for Barcelona this season, starting just once for the Spanish club.

He recently admitted he was unhappy with his lack of game time.

“I need to play and not just enjoy walks around the city and the beach,” Rakitic told 24sata.

“I don’t know what will come now. It’s tough because I want to play and not just be part of the team.”
