Ivan Rakitic addressed speculation over his Barcelona future after Saturday’s 4-2 win over Sevilla.

The midfielder has been linked with Bayern Munich and Inter Milan in recent weeks but made it pretty clear he has no intention of going anywhere.

“I have three more years on my contract, I want to stay here,” he said.

”I’m full of pride that big clubs ask for me, if they do.

”I only see myself at Barcelona, it makes me laugh a little when I have my morning coffee.”

Rakitic was impressive against former team Sevilla and picked up an assist for Lionel Messi’s first goal.

He’s repeatedly said this season he wants to stay, and sign a new contract, but that doesn’t seem to be stopping the speculation.
