At a time when Rakitic is ready to end his six-year spell at Camp Nou, the Croatia international is not short of interest in his signature.
According to Sport, that has resulted in officials at the Catalan giants being prepared to lower their asking price.
Although Barcelona will not cash in on the 32-year-old for the sake of doing so, there is an understanding that they must be realistic over how much money they are likely to receive for the player.
While Rakitic has made 33 appearances in Spain's top flight and the Champions League this season, only 17 of those outings have come from the starting lineup. body check tags ::
