Barcelona Prepared To Sell Two Midfielders To Fund Lionel Messi Contract
Barcelona are reportedly willing to sell two midfielders, Arda Turan and Ivan Rakitic in order to free up funds to offer Lionel Messi a new contract.


The Argentine forward has just 18 months left on his current deal and it seems that the club are currently struggling to reach his wage demands.

According to reports from El Confidential, Turan could make a move to China having failed to establish his presence in the Barcelona first team.

Barcelona are also prepared to listen to offers for Croatia midfielder Ivan Rakitic, who has just started ten la liga games this season.

Manchester city manager, Pep Guardiola is also keen to bring the former Sevilla player to the Etihad stadium as a replacement for the injured IIKay Gundogan.

El Confidencial reporter Alonso Castilla wrote: “He’s lost weight in the team in recent times, when last year he was practically untouchable due to his tremendous work rate.

But now his situation is not the same and Man City appear on the horizon for the Croatian central midfielder.
