The father of the Sevilla star claims the top three Liga clubs in 2013-14 want to sign his son, but hinted the Blaugrana are the preferred option
The father of Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic says his son has received offers from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
The Croatia international scored 12 goals in 34 league appearances last term, as well as being a crucial player in Los Rojiblancos’ Europa League-winning campaign.
And, according to the player’s father, his performances have not gone unnoticed by Spain’s top three teams last season.
“His brother Dejan, who is his agent, has offers on the table from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético,” Luka Rakitic told Croatian newspaper Jutarnji. “But we’ll decide after the World Cup.
“However, the conditions on offer are not better than those he has at Sevilla. He is a God there.”
Meanwhile, Luka Rakitic also talked about which club his son might prefer. “Barcelona are still Barcelona,” he added.
