Barcelona has made their first major purchase of the summer. Ivan Rakitic is now heading to Barca, after the blaugrana have reached an agreement for the midfielder with Sevilla for around 15 million euro (his previous contract was set to expire next season). The Croatian player will sign a deal through 2019, the signature supposedly already arrived. Luis Enrique will be able to count on the best player in the recent Europa League final. Barcelona defeated Manchester United (who never made a concrete offer) in the race for Rakitic.
