Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has once again reiterated his desire to stay at the club, despite speculation linking him to a move away.

The Croatian international has played a minor role so far for Ernesto Valverde's team and with the situation of his contract still pending in Catalonia, he has been reportedly considering a move to Italy.

The Serie A giants, Inter and Juventus are all interested in the Croatian, but Rakitic has confirmed he does not intend to leave Camp Nou.

"Many things have happened in recent months that have been out of my control," Rakitic initially said in an interview with Marca.

"You have to accept these things, and I've moved on and gone through them."

"I have worked hard and continue to do so, as I have always said there is no better place for me than here in Barcelona."

"I want to keep winning titles here, and I'll give it my all for the team," the Croatian concluded.
