Ivan Rakitic believes Barcelona have the capability to become LaLiga champions at the top and the season could not be over due to coronavirus.
When La Liga was sacked last month due to Covid-1, Quick Setienne’s men were at the top with two points to play in that match.
Rakitic feels that if Barcelona’s league winners are at the top and the season closes, even rival Real Madrid have scored just twice.
“We all want to play again and win the league by playing league,” he told Movister.
“I also realized that the season should end if we can’t go back in any way. If we are at the top we need to be a champion, but the deadline must be over.
“Whenever the ideal scenario ends, a well-prepared plan will always be considered, especially next season.”
Rakitic has been linked with the move to Camp Nou in 2009, out of contract, with interest from elsewhere.
The Croatia international insisted he was satisfied with Barcelona, saying: “I don’t want to feel angry or anything like that. It’s not like that.
“I’m calm and happy where I am, but there are definitely two sides and we want to do things well.”
