Ivan Rakitic has spoken about Messi’s future and how the club’s attitude must be toward such a player.
’s transfer saga was probably the most talked-about subject of the summer transfer window. After his team’s disastrous result againstBayern 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 toManchester 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 teammateIvan 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 againstReal Betis
three days later.
