Sevilla sporting director Monchi says he’s aware that Ivan Rakitic fancies returning to the club from Barcelona but revealed he has not been in talks with the Spanish champions over a move.

Rakitic is expected to be sold this summer as he will be out of contract in 2021, and Barca reportedly have no plans to offer the 32-year-old a new deal.

The Croatia international has spoken again recently of his fondness for former club Sevilla, but Monchi says it’s not a good time to talk about the summer transfer window.
