Rumors say that Juventus are interested in Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitić, but a new report says the Croat has not heard from the Italian club directly.

While it’s possible Juve has gotten in touch with the Catalans, no one from Barcelona has forwarded that offer to the player himself, it seems.

Some rumors say that there is a negotiation between Juventus and Barcelona, but it could be for another player, perhaps Arturo Vidal.

Rakitić has been the subject of transfer rumors for a while now, but has remained with the club through it all. He recently said he would not be treated like a “bag of potatoes” in negotiations, hinting strongly that if he were to leave, it’d be under his own terms.
