Ivan Rakitic has spoken about Messi’s future and how the club’s attitude must be toward such a player.

Lionel Messi

’s transfer saga was probably the most talked-about subject of the summer transfer window. After his team’s disastrous result against

Bayern Munchen

in the Champions League, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner submitted his request to exit Barca. Even though there was a lot of rumors about Messi’s transfer to

Manchester City



, Messi stayed at Barcelona and now fans are hopeful to see the one- club man extend his contract with Catalans especially after Josep Maria Bartomeu left the presidential position of the club earlier this week. In a recent interview with Muchodeporte, Messi’s former teammate

Ivan Rakitic

has spoken about Messi and how the club must treat him as a special player with a mercurial talent.

“Players of that level are different from everyone else and the other players have to take care of them in a very special way because of their ability to make a difference.

“We do not know if in the future we will be lucky enough to see a footballer like Leo again.”

Barcelona will play against Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League on Wednesday before continuing their LaLiga campaign with a match against

Real Betis

three days later.
