Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has reportedly decided to give it 30 days before deciding whether he will accept a chance to join Manchester United.
Diario Gol reports that the Croatia international is tempted to take up an offer, one which would likely be his last big contract with an elite European club.
Rakitic would be a perfect fit for a United midfield that is losing Michael Carrick, while doubts still remain over Marouane Fellaini’s long-term future – despite suggestions that he is ready to pen a new Old Trafford contract.
The 30-year-old is expected to cost around £70million and would form an impressive midfield three with Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba.
