Rakitic has not been a regular inclusion in the Barcelona squad this season and has started only 10 out of their 18 La Liga matches.

But the Croatian is still happy at Barcelona and wants a new contract.

“I hope that I can continue here for many years. I want to renew my contract with Barcelona,” Rakitic said after Barcelona‚Äôs 1-0 Copa del Rey win over Real Sociedad on Thursday.

The midfielder has been linked with a move to Manchester City lately.
