Manchester United have enquired about signing Ivan Rakitic from Barcelona, sources have told ESPN.

United are looking at options to bolster Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s threadbare squad ahead of Friday’s transfer deadline and have been made aware of Rakitic’s availability.

However, an agreement is not thought to be close and Rakitic’s desire to keep his family in Spain is another potential stumbling block.

Solskjaer is desperate to add a midfielder to his squad after losing Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay to injury, although United’s recruitment plan remains focused on the summer.
