Rakitic refutes Sevilla exit talk

26 February 2014 16:29

Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic has moved to cool rumours of a close-season exit and insists his focus is purely on his current employers.

The Croatia international has been one of the standout performers in a Sevilla side that currently occupy seventh position in La Liga.

Premier League title hopefuls Chelsea and Liverpool have previously been linked with a move for his services, while La Liga high-flyers Atletico Madrid are also reportedly contemplating an offer.

Rakitic, however, is refusing to be drawn on his future.

Speaking to Radio Marca, he said: "It's needless to comment about Atletico because I have a contract with Sevilla and, as I said, I feel good here.

"I have great respect for Atletico but for me there is only one club - Sevilla.

"Currently there is nothing better than Sevilla and I do not think about anything. The talk about me is nice, but I do not care."

Rakitic has made 33 appearances so far this season in all competitions, scoring 12 goals and creating another 16 for his team-mates.
