However, a move never came to fruition and he was left riding the bench in the early stages of the season. 

The 31-year-old spoke out in a recent interview where he admitted things are looking up for him in Spain.

'Lots of things have happened in the last few months,' Rakitic explained. 'Sometimes, things happen that you can't understand, but you have to accept it.

'It's happened to me. No one gives you anything.

'I want to give my all and if I can play here then I've always said that there's no better place than Barcelona to keep winning trophies, it's the perfect place for me.'
