Rakitic: I am committed to Barcelona

Ivan Rakitic remains committed to Barcelona, despite rumours linking him with a move away from the defending La Liga champions.

The Croatian international has been linked with leading clubs from across Europe in recent months, however he is determined to remain at the Nou Camp.

"I have more than three years left on my contract here and I want to stay here.

"I am full of pride that other big clubs are interested in me, however I only see myself at Barcelona."

The former Sevilla midfielder has made 159 La Liga appearances for Ernesto Valverde's side since moving to Catalonia in 2014, playing a key role in their recent success.

However with Frenkie De Jong due to arrive at the club in the summer from Ajax, there is a growing view that Rakitic's starting place with the club could be under threat.
