Barcelona midfielder Rakitic: I'd welcome Sevilla talks

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic insists he wants to stay.

Rakitic's future at the club has looked unclear since last summer.

"My idea is to stay with Barcelona," Rakitic explained in an interview on the red carpet at the DEX Awards.

"You never know, what I want is to play and enjoy my football.

"I think I have a lot to give and I want to give a lot if I can play, for me there is no better place than Barcelona right now."

With Monchi back in place at Sevilla, there has been suggestions that the Spaniard would like to bring Rakitic back to Andalusia.

"We'll see, if the time comes to be able to speak to them then everybody knows that I would be delighted," he added.

"If I ever was to return to a club then it would be Sevilla, hopefully this can happen one day.

"I'm glad to see how the club is growing, their results and how they are much stronger with every year, that fills me with pride and people already know that my dream would be to wear the Sevilla shirt once again."
