Man Utd trust in-form Pogba and no longer interested in Rakitic (Standard)

According to the London Evening Standard, Manchester United have fallen out of the list of teams interested in Ivan Rakitic.

The Croatian midfielder is key for Ernesto Valerde at Barca. However Barca, after signing Frenkie de Jong from Ajax, have a lot of midfielders and the idea of him staying has been questioned.

Among possible places for him to go are PSG, Inter and Man United - although the latter now are out of the race because Paul Pogba, who looked like he was going to leave under Mourinho, is now in good form and will stay at Old Trafford.

On the other hand, the situation of one of PSG's players could have a big impact. Barca have also been interested in Adrien Rabiot and if he arrives, then Rakitic's position really will be in danger.

The Croatian has always said he wants to stay at Barca.
