Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic insists that he is "not a sack of potatoes" and that he will make his own mind up about his future.

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has insisted that he is "not a sack of potatoes" and will make his own decision over his future.

The 32-year-old has regularly been linked with a move away from Camp Nou in recent transfer windows, with Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Inter Milan all credited with an interest.

Rakitic has made only 15 starts for Barcelona this season, and he stressed that he will only be happy at a club if he feels "valued".

"I am not a sack of potatoes. I will decide my future," the Croatia international told Mundo Deportivo.

"I want to be where I am valued. If it is here, [I would be] delighted, and if not, it will be where I decide."

Rakitic has made 31 appearances across all competitions this season and is one game short of 300 for the club in total.
