Bayern Munich are prepared to offer Barcelona a total of €80M for the transfer of Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic.
This is as per Don Balon, who are reporting that ther German giants have made contact with the former Sevilla star’s representatives and that they are willing to offer the player €9M a year for the next four campaigns.
The news outlet are also saying that Rakitic will not be making any decision on his future at the Camp Nou until after the World Cup.
Rakitic has proven to be a key figure in Croatia’s run to the semi finals in the World Cup this summer, with the player’s partnership with Luka Modric being crucial to his side’s successes.
The Croat has also been pivotal for the Blaugrana this past season, with the midfielder’s impact on the game being huge as he helped the Spanish giants win both the La Liga title and the Copa Del Rey.
Rakitic’s partnership with both Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta has been one that has helped the club reclaim the La Liga title back off of rivals Real Madrid.
If Bayern are to pay €80M for Rakitic, it’ll be interesting to see what Barcelona do in terms of replacing him should he head to the Allianz Arena.
