Arsenal target Rakitic denies Barcelona exit plans

Ivan Rakitic insists his priority is to stay with Barcelona.

The veteran midfielder was said to be seeking a move this summer, with Arsenal and former club Sevilla in touch.

For their part, Barca management would not stand in Rakitic's way should he choose to depart.

But the Croatia international says: "Do I want to continue at FC Barcelona next season? I always said yes.

"I don't have to think any other way."
