'Let's hope Rakitic's doping test is positive': fans kick Croatian out amid Bilbao preparations
- 8 Barcelona players took their doping-tests in the morning ahead of the season's kick-off.
- As for Rakitic, not all the fans are happy with his arrival.
- His future is to be clear soon, however, Valverde allegedly wants the 31-year-old to stay.
The testing is held for all La Liga teams ahead of the new season campaign and the visits of Anti-Doping Agency are usually not scheduled beforehand.
Although the results are unknown, it's expected that no one among the tested players would deal with problems.
However, some of the fans aren't delighted that Ivan Rakitic is still staying at the club.
"I hope Rakitic is positive."
"I fully agree that Rakitic should be kicked out. He has a negative impact on our team both on and off the pitch. He's now preventing us from getting Neymar, and the main issue for me is that he'll take time away from Alena, Arthur, Puig, etc."
The Croatian's future is yet to be resolved as the 31-year-old could still be the part of a swapping deal with PSG. However, the latest reports outlined Valverde's willingness to keep the player for the new season. Still, the Parisians' sporting director Leonardo reportedly wishes to see Ivan as part of Thomas Tuchel's squad.
