Inter Milan and Juventus also had the player on their wishlist but weren’t able to materialise a deal before the deadline day.

A Spanish media outlet has disclosed via Calciomercato that the 31-year-old midfielder had been wanted in Qatar but the deal died because he rejected the offer.

Rakitic is currently not having the best of days in Camp Nou as he’s currently out of favour and might likely force a move out immediately the winter transfer window kick starts.
