He serves as an instant replacement for the departing Cesc Fabregas. He played 127 times for Sevilla scoring 27 goals.

Barcelona has made their first major purchase of the summer. Ivan Rakitic is now heading to Barca, after the blaugrana have reached an agreement for the midfielder with Sevilla for around 15 million euro.
