Ivan Rakitic has set his sights on joining French giants Paris Saint-Germain, reports The Metro.
The Croatian star, who has been rated at £10 million, has been linked with a move to the Premier League with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea all reportedly interested in the player's services.
However, after PSG reportedly entered the race for the star, it now appears that he would rather a move to France.
This will come as a blow to the Premier League trio who had all wanted to bring the star to England's elite division in the upcoming market.
Manchester United and Liverpool have both been tipped to spend in January and with the Red Devils desperate to add to their midfield, they may now have to look elsewhere.
With the transfer market opening tomorrow, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea could all make movements as they look to improve their squads.
