Juventus are reportedly not giving up on Ivan Rakitic and could go back in for the Barcelona midfielder in January.
Rakitic ended up staying at Barca after Juve refused to exchange him for Federico Bernardeschi.
However, Tuttosport claims the Croat had reached ‘a broad agreement’ over personal terms with the Bianconeri and still ‘hopes’ he can move next year.
The 31-year-old’s place at Camp Nou is under threat after the emergence of Arthur and Frenkie de Jong.
The newspaper adds he is the ‘ideal’ midfielder for the high-pressing, short-passing style that Maurizio Sarri is trying to implement.
Rakitic joined the Blaugrana from Sevilla in 2014 and has gone on to win four Spanish titles and a Champions League in his 269 appearances.
