FC Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic left it clear in a press confernece that he and the club both want him to remain.
"My idea is very clear, I want to stay at Barca. (Transfer talk) is a situation I'm used to. It happened to me last year," said Rakitic.
"I've spoken with the club and the coach and we have the same idea, for me to stay at Barca. We're open to everything, as always, but my intention is to stay. I have two more years on my contract and I want to keep enjoying myself at Barca."
Rakitic is not upset by rumours. "It doesn't annoy me. I know that football works like this and it makes me proud because if other teams want me it's because I'm doing things very well. I'm calm."
Rakitic added: "I spoke with the president on various topics and now the club has other things to do before thinking about (my new contract). The president wants to create a good squad so that the fans can enjoy Barca."
