Former Liverpool striker Luis Garcia claims Ivan Rakitic is ‘at another level’ when compared to other midfielders operating in La Liga, amid speculation the Croatian is wanted by Manchester United and on Merseyside.

Rakitic has scored 10 goals and provided seven assists in 22 league appearances this season, which has led to speculation he could leave the the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in the summer transfer window, with the Premier League mentioned as a possible destination.

Liverpool and Manchester United have both been credited with interest in the 25-year-old, who has a reported release clause of €40 million written into his contract, as Brendan Rodgers and David Moyes consider potential new recruits.

Garcia certainly deems Rakitic as a worthy acquisition for either manager, although would surely hope his former club can clinch a deal that sees the player move to Anfield rather than Old Trafford.

“Rakitic is a great player, a great example [of the type of quality available in Spain],” Garcia told IBTimes when asked directly about Liverpool’s reported interest in Rakitic.

“He's at another level, and he's demonstrating it in every game.”
