Rangers Move to Secure Borna Barisic’s Future Amidst La Liga Interest

Recent reports suggest that La Liga clubs have expressed interest in Rangers’ defender Borna Barisic, sparking concerns for the Ibrox club. However, Rangers are taking proactive measures behind the scenes to secure the Croatian’s future and ward off potential suitors during the January transfer window. With Barisic’s current contract set to expire at the end of the season, the Light Blues are eager to negotiate a new deal, ensuring the player remains an integral part of their squad.

Football Scotland revealed that multiple clubs, including those from Ligue 1, La Liga, and Serie B, have approached Barisic, who is now free to engage in discussions with these teams as he enters the final six months of his contract with Rangers. Recognizing the gravity of the situation, the Scottish club is keen on avoiding exit discussions and has initiated efforts to secure Barisic’s future with a new contract.

Allowing Barisic to leave without a new deal could be detrimental to Rangers’ prospects, particularly in their pursuit of the Premiership title. With limited options at left-back, the departure of the 31-year-old Croatian could significantly impact the team’s defensive stability. The potential departure of Ridvan Yilmaz to Hellas Verona this month adds to the urgency, as Rangers would be left without a genuine left-back in their squad.

Rangers are actively working to tie Barisic down to a new contract, ensuring that they receive a reasonable fee if the defender decides to leave in the summer transfer window. Given Barisic’s status as a proven international defender, allowing him to walk away for nothing at the end of the season would be a considerable loss for the club.
