Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has told reporters that the club will not be accepting any transfer bids for Ivan Rakitic.
'He is an integral part of the team and we will do everything in our power to keep him', said the Barcelona manager.
The statement was made in response to media reports that Manchester United are planning to launch a €38 million bid for the Croation playmaker.
Despite Luis Enrique's claims that Rakitic is not for sale, one well-placed source at the Camp Nou has said that the club is willing to part ways with the Croation playmaker if an acceptable is received.
'If someone comes in with a bid of around €38 million, then I can see that being accepted.'
