Barcelona outcast Ivan Rakitic refuses to rule out the prospect of completing a January transfer to Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona outcast Ivan Rakitic has refused to rule out the prospect of completing a January transfer to Atletico Madrid.

The midfielder looks set to leave the club in January after being reduced to just two starts in La Liga since the arrival of Frenkie de Jong from Ajax over the summer.

Reports have suggested that Atletico recently made contact with Barcelona over the prospect of doing a deal for the Croatia international.

When asked about the prospect of completing a move to Atletico, Rakitic told Carrusel Deportivo: "Atletico in January? We will see. Fight for everything and I want to fight for everything and play everything."

It has also been claimed that Inter Milan are keen on completing a deal for Rakitic, with Antonio Conte said to be keen on the player.

Juventus were also linked with Rakitic, who is valued at around £30m, but sporting director Fabio Paratici recently ruled out the prospect of doing business in January.
