Bayern Munich are launching a bid for Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.
The Croatia international is regarded highly by new Bayern coach Niko Kovac, who has personally requested his signing from the board.
Don Balon says Bayern aim to tempt Barca with an offer of €70m for Rakitic.
And while happy at Barca, Rakitic will be tempted to move to Bayern and work with countryman Kovac.
The midfielder did not always feel he had the full backing of coach Ernesto Valverde last season and will seriously consider a move to Germany should Bayern formalise their interest.
