The Andalusian club sees the operation economically unviable. “It is so complicated economically, that I do not see it,” Monchi accepted.
The dreamed return of Ivan Rakitic to Seville seems to be practically out of the question. This has been confirmed Monchi, the sports director of the Andalusian club, who assured that the arrival of the player from Barcelona It is very difficult”.
“Iván is a player who, from what he declares, would like to return to Sevilla today, tomorrow or in two years. That I personally would like him to return? I do not hide that he is my friend, but I see him today very difficult if not impossible, “Monchi began by telling the Diario de Sevilla.
And he added: “More difficult things have been seen in football, but in the short term I do not see it. It is so complicated economically, that I do not see it. That this continues to feed? We must give news. We always carry our planning in secret”.
Rumors about the Croatian’s departure have been growing in recent months and there was even talk of a formal offer of 10 million euros, although both parties denied the agreement.
Seville would only count on the arrival of Rakitic if the footballer arrives with the freedom letter or a symbolic compensation is paid to Barça. The Seville club could thus compensate the footballer’s record, which would be reduced with a longer contract, since in the Blaugrana club he only has one year left.
