Rakitic Slams Barca: I'm Not A Sack Of Potatoes

FC Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has out at the Catalan giants after he was apparently being used as part of a swap deal that would have brought Neymar back to the Camp Nou.

The Croatian has been for six years now but has seen his game time drop in the past year following the arrivals of Arthur and Frenkie de Jong.

Reports in Spain claimed Blaugrana were willing to offer Rakitic and cash for Neymar last year, but nothing materialised and both players remained at their respective clubs.

Rakitic was seemingly not happy with the idea of being used in a deal for the former Barcelona attacker.

"I understand the situation, but I'm not a sack of potatoes that you can just do anything with," he told Mundo Deportivo.

"I want to be somewhere I feel wanted, respected and needed. If that's here then I'll be delighted, but if it's somewhere else, I'll be the one who decides where, not anyone else.

"Last year was the best of the six I've had here and I was annoyed with how I was treated. I was very surprised and I didn't understand it."
