Villarreal president Fernando Roig has not hidden his interest in Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic. The Croatian may end up leaving the club and his final destination may only be a crawl down Spain's east coast.
"I like Rakitic as a player, if next year he wants to come to Villarreal, we are here," said Roig on Cadena Cope radio.
Roig said "I think that we have to finish the league", and that "I don't think there are any clubs interested in not playing." "We will do rapid tests every two or three weeks and we will agree where the players will sleep."
