Barcelona are reportedly confident about keeping Ivan Rakitic amid interest from Manchester City.
Rakitic has endured a difficult season so far, flitting in and out of Luis Enrique's starting XI.
The Croatia international is wanted by City with Pep Guardiola desperate for cover for the injured Ilkay Gundogan.
However, Goal claim Barcelona are confident Rakitic will commit his future to the club.
The midfielder's current deal expires in 2019 but the Catalan club are confident he will renew his contract in the foreseeable future.

Barcelona are confident Ivan Rakitic will stay
Lionel Messi could become Europe's highest-paid player
Barcelona are ready to offer Lionel Messi £35million a year to stay at the Nou Camp.
Messi's contract expires in 2018 and, despite the club agreeing deals with Neymar and Luis Suarez, is yet to put pen to paper on an extension.
However, Spanish newspaper AS claim they are ready to make him Europe's highest-paid player.
His salary would dwarf the £365,000-a-week salary Cristiano Ronaldo earns at Real Madrid.
And that is seen as the ticket to fending off interest from City and Manchester United.
In an interview with AS, new Shanghai Shenhua striker Carlos Tevez said he doubts compatriot Messi will ever move to China.
"I think Leo has something special going on with Barcelona – he was practically born there – it's his club, his home.
"Whether he renews or not, I don't think it's a question of money for him – I think it's more about what his heart tells him he should do,” Tevez said.
Barcelona are not set to sign Philippe Coutinho
Journalist Guillem Balague reckons Philippe Coutinho will not be leaving Liverpool for Barcelona.
Coutinho has long been linked with a move to Catalonia.
But Balague cannot see a deal happening due to the form of Barcelona's formidable attack.
“I don’t think so," he told Sky Sports when asked if there had been any talks between the clubs.
“There has been no real interest from Barcelona for the Liverpool forward.
“I know Rivaldo has spoken about it but it doesn’t make sense because they see him as a forward and the front three will be the front three next season.”
