Man Utd Set to Agree Deal for Barcelona midfielder

    Manchester United and AC Milan have reportedly been put on alert amid claims Barcelona are ready to sell midfielder Ivan Rakitic. United boss Jose Mourinho is in the hunt for a new central midfielder this summer and, having been linked with moves for Eric Dier, Nemanja Matic and Fabinho, has admitted his transfer dealings this summer are “only 50% done”, reports Teamtalk.

The bad news for Mourinho is that news of a possible Rakitic sale has alerted the free spending Italian side AC Milan, who have spent over €200m in recent weeks as fresh investment looks to bring the good times back to the San Siro.

Barcelona are likely to demand a fee in the region of £40m for the midfielder, who only signed a new contract with the Catalan club in March and who’s deal does not end until 2020.

Having signed defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica and Everton’s Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku, Mourinho has claimed his transfer business is “50% done” and will be looking to push forward any deal for Rakitic in the next few days.
