Initially they put economic fetters to the possible return of Ivan Rakitic to the Seville this summer, but in the last hours the operation is winning whole and no longer is an utopia for the Croatian midfield player the possibility to go back to dress, in hardly some months, the T-shirt hispalense. The '4' of the Barça never has hid that it would love him return to the Sánchez Pizjuán, and now has the perfect occasion.

It finishes agreement with the FC Barcelona in June of 2021, does not foresee that it go to renew and the Catalan entity, with the aim to give off of his high wage, would accept a traspaso to the Seville as long as from the Nervión offer a minimum of 10 million euros. Rakitic Fulfilled 32 years the past 10 March, and the Barça wants to reward the professionalism that has showed along these last six seasons boosting a change of airs course to the destination preferred by the footballer, that is not another that Seville.

Like this it has said it publicly in more than an occasion, and is this summer when it can give a favourable context so that it return with his family to the capital hispalense, where knew to his wife, Raquel Mauri, when it was 'drafted' by Monchi. Since it expanded links in March of 2017 with the Barça, there have not been movements to improve his index card and lengthen the contractual relation. The player never has given problems to the club, not even when his name put on of the table for a barter with the PSG in return of the return of Neymar Jr.

Now, the Barça does not want to lose money with the operation but neither aspires to make a big business, given the conditions of the traspaso (age of the footballer, agreement until 2021, derivative crisis of the coronavirus...) And the fact that it treats of a footballer that already has been amortised along the six campaigns that has dressed the elastic Barcelona, after having arrived pertinent of the Seville in return of 24 million euros in summer of 2014.

Rakitic And the Seville, a history of love

"It would be a big dream go back to the Seville", said Rakitic in an interview conceded in the month of April to 'MD'. And it saw able to play "three or four seasons to the maximum level", with the hope to follow feeling important and valuable on the terrains of game. The ex of the Seville has turned into a very profitable investment for the Barça, and seems that it has arrived the hour to separate the ways.

The FC Barcelona is decided to be followed with the rejuvenation of his staff this summer, and this will cause almost with total security the exit of a Rakitic that, with minutes and rhythm of competition, keeps on being one of the best midfield players of the world. During the three seasons and average that defended the T-shirt of the Seville, starred a balance of 149 official parties, 32 goals and 41 assistances. Now, want to more.
