Ivan Rakitic has decided he wishes to stay with Barcelona at least until the end of the season according to a report from Spanish news outlet Marca.
The Croatian midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at the Catalan club this season which has led to lots of rumours in the media that he could move on in January with Inter, Juventus and Manchester United all linked to him.
He is however confident in his own ability to change his fortunes at the Camp Nou, where he has played his football since 2014.
Rakitic came close to departing during the Summer transfer window as well but has always remained confident that the best place for him to be is at Barcelona, who he has made a total of 283 appearances for.
This season, the 31-year-old, who was a runner up at the 2018 World Cup, has made 15 appearances across all competitions, in which he has provided two assists.
