Ivan Rakitic’s future at Barcelona is in serious doubt — and we can reveal he has been part of a WhatsApp group called ‘Juventus’ for the past five months, according to the Sun.

Croatia partners Mario Mandzukic and Marko Pjaca, and also the midfielder's former Nou Camp colleague, Dani Alves, are the other members.

A source told The Sun that the trio have been trying to urge the Barcelona star to make the move since the summer.

Rakitic has been flooded with messages which incorporate how beautiful the Juventus Stadium is and what incredible solidarity there is within the team.

They also regularly send him selfies after victories.
