Ivan Rakitic’s game time at Barcelona has reduced, but that is the least of the midfielder’s worries as he’s still itching to sign a contract renewal.
The former Sevilla man has fallen down the pecking order at Barcelona and has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Camp Nou.
Rakitic started in the 1-0 copa del rey quarterfinals win over Real Sociedad, and gave an update on his future after the match.
“I hope that I can continue here for many years. I want to renew my contract with Barcelona,” Rakitic said.
“I am worried because I always want to play but I have absolute confidence in the coach. I need to work but I’m confident.”
Rakitic has made 13 La Liga appearances for Barca this season, 10 of those as a starter with two goals scored.
