As per Sport, the Nerazzurri have started talks for Rakitic. The Croatian isn't happy with the situation at Barcelona, where he's getting little playing time. Last week, there was a meeting between Inter and the Catalan side.
Barcelona are asking for €35m, while the Nerazzurri would like to close a deal at a lower figure. There is still distance between the two clubs, but the relations are excellent and that could lead to an agreement.
