Rakitic Expecting New Barca Deal After Snubbing Top Europen Clubs

The Croatia international admits to being in talks over a new contract, with the decision taken to stay at Camp Nou rather than head for France.

Ivan Rakitic is confident that he will be signing a new contract at Barcelona, with the decision taken to snub a summer transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Croatia international was among those targeted by the Ligue 1 champions as they seek to bring another creative influence onto their books.

Rakitic figured on their radar after seeing Barca bring in the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Arthur, Malcom and Arturo Vidal during recent windows.

The 30-year-old shunned their advances, though, and is now ready to commit to fresh terms at Camp Nou.

Rakitic told Sport: “It’s something that I’ve already spoken to the club about, before and during the World Cup.

“It’ll arrive soon but there’s no rush. I know that the club looks after its players well and I’m confident the ‘presi’ will call me soon.”

Rakitic has also revealed that he was never close to trading La Liga for Ligue 1.

He did consider an offer from PSG, but was always determined to remain at Barcelona and fight for his place.

“I listened to my wife and my heart and I realised that I’m very privileged to wear Barcelona’s shirt,” he added.

“To defend this badge is the greatest honour. There isn’t a team in the world who could give me more, unless it’s money.

“My eldest child has been at their school for two years and she has her friends. The youngest is about to start preschool. We’re very happy here and in that regard it was a very easy decision to make. I’m proud to continue at Barca.”

Rakitic was never forced into making a decision by Barcelona, with the Liga heavyweights stopping short of accepting the terms tabled by PSG.

“If that had been the case, then we would’ve talked,” said a man who graced the 2018 World Cup final with his country over the summer.

“We’d need to see what was best for everyone and if the club had approached it that way, then maybe my reaction would’ve been different.

“The most important aspect is that we can work together and that what might be good for me, might be bad for the club.

“The most important thing is we want to continue working together. I feel very wanted by the people at this club and the supporters. That’s why I made the decision so quickly.”

  1. As much as I love [url=http://mytravelnavi.com/]hostels[/url] and other forms of cheap accommodation, there is something nice about the luxuriousness of a hotel: the clean room, comfy bed, desk, iron, strong shower, and also bottled soap to the taking (errr…I mean borrowing). They are silent, relaxing, and a respite from the whole world.
    A couple of years back, I was traveling to seminars as well as other work-related events alot and residing in a bunch of hotels. I decided to see if I could locate the hotel booking site. I chose a couple cities and searched six reservation websites — Expedia, [url=http://mytravelnavi.com/]Mytravelnavi.com[/url], Booking.com, Hotwire, Priceline, and TravelPony — in two -, 3-, and 4-star categories.
    So I decided to do another hunt to make an effort to come across the ideal site in order to reserve a hotel in 2018. This time I hunted Expedia, [url=http://mytravelnavi.com/]Mytravelnavi.com[/url], Booking.com, Agoda, along with Priceline for deals in London, New York, Paris, Bangkok, Buenos Aires, and Berlin. I hunted on July 3rd for space later that week and then one month later during the weekday and weekend (availability and prices vary within the weekend).
    The Best [url=http://mytravelnavi.com/]Hotel Booking Website[/url]
    This period that the best hotel booking web site was Booking.com. Though it didn’t yield the largest number of total places, Booking.com came back the greatest number of inexpensive places — and that’s the most significant things. I discovered largest number and the best deals in the destinations I searched for on Booking. For example, in my own September search in Paris, it listed over 2,300 results, for example 250 two star listings and 750 star listings (plus it said that the spot was over 60% reserved when I hunted ). Agoda still had the best results in Asia (it came back 2,900 contributes to Bangkok compared to 2,500 for Booking) but had definitely expanded their listings around the world — it roughly tied Booking at Paris, Buenos Aires, along with Sydney for overall listings, even though they had fewer budget listings than Booking.
    The 2nd best [url=http://mytravelnavi.com/]hotel booking[/url] web site was Agoda, that had a lot of results, though it’s strong suit remains in Asia.
    And all those other key hotel booking sites? Well, Orbitz and Travelocity are a portion of Expedia and utilize the exact identical database, also they tilted more to the end of the cost spectrum while a large number of results turned back. And internet sites such as Priceline and Hotwire have top-notch blind booking and bidding options that can provide you with an extremely inexpensive hotel (from the star category and area you want). Sometimes prices are upto 40 percent off. The disadvantage? You never get to understand the name.
