Rakitic hints at a very special move (it's already occupied by Barca players)
- Ivan doesn't exclude his switch to Vissel Kobe.
- He highlights his "family" relations with Iniesta.
- At the moment, the 32-year-old is reported to be put on transfer list.
"I don't know what's gonna happen in the future, so I can't confirm nor deny," told the Croatian during the pre-match press conference ahead of Vissel Kobe clash.
Ivan reveals that his relations with Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta remain more than just friendly.
"With Iniesta, we're more then friends. We're family. We talk about other stuff, not just football. Who knows, I might even join the J League with him (laughs)."
With ex-Barca defender Thomas Vermaelen already posing in a Vissel Kobe shirt ahead of his presentation, Ivan Rakitic could become the 5th Blaugrana player to join the Japanese side after Iniesta, Villa and Samper.
The 32-year-old is reported to be put on transfer list, however, besides Vissel Kobe, Ivan is still to decide whether he will snub Croatians-obsessed Inter Milan or not.
