Sevilla coach Monchi casts doubt on re-signing Barcelona midfielder Rakitic

Sevilla coach Monchi has cast doubt on re-signing Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

Speaking with Diario de Sevilla, he doesn't deny the door will always be open to the Croatian, although he claims that it may not be possible at a price.

"Ivan's a player that, for what he's said, would like to return to Sevilla one day," he said. "Would I personally want him back? I don't hide that he's my friend, but as of today it's very difficult, if not impossible.

"More difficult things have happened in football, but I don't see it in the short term. It's so difficult financially that I don't see it."
