OFFICIAL: Barcelona sign Ivan Rakitic from Sevilla; post picture on Instagram

Barcelona have officially signed Ivan Rakitic from Sevilla on a five-year-contract.

The Croatia midfielder is currently representing his country at the World Cup after impressing last season for a Sevilla side that lifted the Europa League and came within a whisker of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

An official Barcelona statement also revealed that Denis Suarez would be loaned to Sevilla as part of the deal: “FC Barcelona and Sevilla FC have reached an agreement for the transfer of Ivan Rakitic. Ivan Rakitic will sign a contract with FC Barcelona for the next five seasons. Both clubs have also agreed for Denis Suárez to be loaned to the Andalusian club for the next two seasons.”

Rakitic is not the only midfielder Barcelona supposedly wish to add to their squad. Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke is also on their radar.
