Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic has opened the door for a January move to the Premier League by revealing that he is growing frustrated with life at his current club.
Rakitic was one of only a few top stars not to be sold by Sevilla over the summer, as the Spanish club sanctioned deals to let Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo, Gary Medel and Geoffrey Kondogbia leave after missing out on European qualification.
The Croatian has since become the focal point of the team, but says that he is unsure where his future lies after a frustrating few years at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan:
“A football player can never say with certainty that he will remain in his club,” he is quoted by The Mirror.
“Such is the nature of our business. I’m in Seville for three years now and in this time many things have changed.
“It is clear that in such a big club people can not be satisfied with average results.
“If there is no success, if there are no trophies, frustration grows. Everything has changed.”
United have been linked with a potential double deal for Rakitic and his team-mate Alberto Moreno, while Liverpool chief Brendan Rodgers is said to be ready to splash £14m to land the 25-year-old.
