Manchester City are allegedly contemplating an approach for Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

Manchester City have allegedly identified Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic as a potential transfer target.

While Pep Guardiola has insisted that the Premier League champions will not be active in January, the Spaniard may change his stance with his side eight points off the pace in England's top flight.

With David Silva due to end his stay at the Etihad Stadium in the summer, City could be in the market for more experience in the centre of the park.

According to reports in Spain, an approach for Rakitic is being considered by the North-West giants, aware that the Croatia international is out of favour at Camp Nou.

The 31-year-old has made just one start and five substitute outings in La Liga and the Champions League during the current campaign.

Manchester United and Inter Milan have also been linked with a move for the player, who has a contract at Barca until the end of next season.
