Rakitic ‘on final stage of joining Sevilla’

Advertisements

Barcelona continue to work on their summer rebuild, despite the obvious elephant in the room, and Ivan Rakitic could be one of the first to leave with the Croatian a mere step away from re-joining Sevilla.

Negotiations between the Andalusian club and Barcelona have accelerated in the last hours, with Ronald Koeman making it clear to Rakitic that he wasn’t in his plans.

MARCA has learned that the player is undergoing the requisite medical tests in Barcelona, ahead of his imminent transfer.

Monchi completed his third signing of the window after Suso and Oscar Rodriguez both arrived on permanent deals, and Rakitic will take the place of the departing Ever Banega.

Rakitic had always been clear that he didn’t want to leave Barcelona, although events of recent months have made that stance waver somewhat.

A departure from Spain itself, though, was always going to be impossible with his family settled and comfortable, so it looked like it would be a direct battle between Sevilla and Atletico Madrid.

The latter never appeared though, and now Rakitic will go back to the place he considers to be home, where he enjoyed some of his finest footballing moments.
