Barcelona are ready to sell midfielder Ivan Rakitic for €20 million this summer, with the Croatian keen to stay in Spain.

Rakitic is under contract until 2021 at Camp Nou and Barca will look to cash in on a player who is no longer a guaranteed first choice for the Blaugrana.

One possibility could be a return to former club Sevilla, where Rakitic spent three-and-a-half seasons before moving to Barca in 2014.

Sevilla are interested and would be prepared to offer Rakitic a four-year contract to finish his career in Andalusia, but are understood to be unwilling to meet Barca’s valuation.

Atletico Madrid are also weighing up a move for Rakitic and the Rojiblancos should be able to meet Barca’s €20m valuation this summer, although their transfer spending may depend on the financial effects of the coronavirus shutdown and qualification for the Champions League.
