Rakitic has admitted it would be a “dream” to head back to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, while Barca are said to be willing to sell.
Yet Monchi thinks it’s a tough deal to do financially for his side and it not expecting the Croatian to return any time soon.
“Ivan’s a player that, for what he’s said, would like to return to Sevilla one day,” he said.
“Would I personally want him back? I don’t hide that he’s my friend, but as of today it’s very difficult, if not impossible.
“More difficult things have happened in football, but I don’t see it in the short term. It’s so difficult financially that I don’t see it.”
