Official: Rakitic returns six years later to Sevilla for € 1.5M

The agreement with Barcelona was already complete and the Croatian will be Banega's replacement. Sign for four seasons, two of them conditional.


The return of Ivan Rakitic to Sevilla is a reality. After agreeing with Barcelona on his transfer in recent days, the Nervionense club finally finds the long-awaited return of the Croatian as its best weapon to solve Ever Banega's goodbye.

There were not too many problems in the negotiation in the present context: the player only wanted to go to Seville and Barcelona did not have him in their new project and tried to find a way out. The parts were destined to be understood and this was done through amounts conditional on Sevilla's European rankings each season.

Julen Lopetegui thus finds another reinforcement for his new project after the signings of Suso and Óscar Rodríguez, solving a large part of the needs that arose in creation due to the departure of Ever Banega, one of his most decisive men in this triumphal course. Rakitic arrives six years after leaving Nervión, when he did so celebrating the third Europa League title for the Seville team. His celebration from Barcelona of the sixth continental title reflected the player's clear desire to once again be a protagonist in Nervión.

Rakitic signs for two seasons with the option of another two depending on his performance. The club itself affects its official note that it signs until 2024, while the amount disbursed by Sevilla is approximately 1.5 million, while it can reach almost eight depending on the European classifications that the Nervionense team achieves in these campaigns .
