Ivan Rakitic to seal Manchester United transfer to replace Paul Pogba?

The 31-year-old won the treble with the Catalan giants back in 2014/15 and has won three more La Liga titles since then, along with three Copa del Rey final victories too.

That experience, as well as his quality and playing style, could make him a hugely valuable addition for MUFC this summer.
