Milan will try again to sign Ivan Rakitic from Barcelona, claim Mundo Deportivo, but his €8m per year salary represents a big problem.
According to the Spanish newspaper, the Rossoneri are set for a third attempt to coax Rakitic to San Siro.
He is seen as a leadership figure and star name in midfield to help younger figures around him develop.
The 32-year-old Croatia international’s contract with Barcelona is due to expire in June 2021 and a summer exit is not out of the question.
However, Milan and Sevilla would find it difficult to balance the books with his €8m per season wages.
Atletico Madrid are also named as an option for Rakitic, while he was linked with Inter in the past.
