Is it good to join BARC

Rakitic wants to stay in Spain and is ready to join Seville

  • Should he be forced to leave the club, the 32-year-old would choose Sevilla.
  • In January, Rakitic turned down Juve's 42 million offer because he wanted to stay in Spain.
  • The veteran midfielder is unlikely to stay with Barca as his contract expires next year.

The Croatian midfielder is unlikely to stay at Barca beyond the summer ...

Diario Sport delivers a crucial update on the future of Ivan Rakitic. The source claims the Croatian is expected to leave Barcelona after the 2019/2020 season.

Even though many top clubs are reportedly interested in Rakitic, his preferred destination is Seville, according to Sport. After all, the Croatian spent three years there and even met his wife in the city of Seville. In addition, the midfielder is not ready to leave Spain.

According to Catala TV Esport3, Ivan Rakitic's days at Camp Nou are numbered: the Croatian will leave the club at the end of the season.

Barcelona believe there will be demand for the midfielder this summer and are ready to take advantage of the interest.

Rakitic's role in the team was drastically reduced over the course of the season. The former Sevilla man started playing against Sociedad on Saturday due to Arthur's injury. He did well in the first 15 minutes. In the second half, the Croatian was replaced from the stands amid loud cheers.

The midfielder is clearly no longer a starter. Given his form, Quique Setien could do better with Riqui Puig.
