Transfer news and rumours UPDATES: Money not enough to tempt Cavani to Man Utd

Rakitic unhappy at Barca's handling of transfer saga

Ivan Rakitic has admitted his unhappiness with Barcelona as the Croatian remained at the club through the January transfer window despite becoming a fringe player this season.

The 31-year-old played 90 minutes in the 2-1 La Liga win over Levante on Sunday - in only his eighth league start for the campaign so far.

Rakitic was linked with moves to Manchester United and Juventus throughout the recent transfer window but ultimately remained at the Blaugrana.

The striker surprisingly stayed put in January

Edinson Cavani's agent insists the money offered by Chelsea and Manchester United would not have been enough to tempt the Uruguayan to leave Paris Saint Germain, as reported by the Mirror.

The striker was hoping for a move to Atletico Madrid in January but was unable to force one through with just six months remaining until he becomes a free agent.

But his representative says that no amount of money could have pursuaded him to choose Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge.
