The Neymar transfer saga is getting crazier and crazier. According to a recent update from Madrid-based outlet Diario AS, Paris Saint-Germain are currently preparing a presentation video for Ivan Rakitic. Moreover, the report claims that the fans are ready to welcome the Croatia international at Parc des Princes.
However, the same source reports the Catalans have told the Ligue 1 outfit that Rakitic will only leave as a part of Neymar deal.
AS are not the only ones to report Ivan's possible departure. According to a recent update from RAC1, PSG have made an 'irresistible' offer to Rakitic. It is expected that the Croat would be involved in a deal to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou. So far, the Croat appears to be the only player to have accepted a possible move to PSG.
Earlier, French outlet Le Parisien also claimed that PSG were ready to offer Ivan a four-year contract. As a reminder, the 31-year-old mentioned several times in interviews that he would like his contract at Barcelona extended, but the club seems reluctant to do so. His current deal in Catalonia expires in 2021.
Nonetheless, Rakitic has been included in Valverde's squad for the away Osasuna match. However, if the midfielder won't play against Osasuna (just like he didn't vs Real Betis last week), it could be a clear indication that Barca are ready to let go of him.
"We hope to count on him, there are still three days in the transfer window left, we will see what happens," said Ernesto on Rakitic's situation in his most recent press conference.
