Croatia international Ivan Rakitic is reportedly having medical examination at Spanish La Liga side Sevilla over a big summer move from Barcelona.
This means that Ivan Rakitic is among the players who have been told to leave Barcelona by new coach Ronald Koeman.
Massive overhauling is said to be expected at Barcelona which has started since their defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
According to the report by Marca, the 32-year-old has agreed to rejoin Sevilla this summer and the Europa League winners will only need to agree with Barcelona chiefs.

Before joining Barcelona, Ivan Rakitic was at Sevilla for three years and it was his superb performances that made ways for him to the Nou Camp.
Rakitic won a host of major honours at Barcelona, and given Sevilla’s continued success in the Europa League, he’ll surely have the chance of picking up more silverware.
The Croat actually started his professional career at FC Basel in 2005 before moving to Schalke two years later and played in Germany for four years before joining Sevilla.
Meanwhile, Barcelona are still in crisis over the future of Lionel Messi with reports linking the Argentine with a move to join Premier League side Manchester City.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Lionel Messi's decision to give Barcelona chiefs a notice that he wants to leave the club has put the Catalans and even the fans into serious confusions ahead of next season.
For the past 19 years, Messi has been wearing Barcelona shirts and has never played for any other club in his career except the Nou Camp landlords.
The Argentina international has won everything at Barcelona with Messi who is also the first player on earth to have six Ballon d'Or awards.
But the Champions League embarrassing defeat against Bayern Munich caused the trouble which made Lionel Messi tell the club's chiefs that he wants to leave.
