MADRID - Sevilla have signed Croatia
midfielder Ivan Rakitic from Schalke 04 on a contract until
2015, the Spanish club said on Friday.
The Swiss-born 22-year-old moved for around 1.5 million
euros, local media reported.
"I had a lot of options, many clubs in other leagues asked
for me, but I wanted to come to Spain and Sevilla seemed to be
the best choice," Rakitic told the club website.
He is set to be joined at the Sanchez Pizjuan by versatile
Chile midfielder Gary Medel who has passed a medical before
completing his move from Boca Juniors, where he has been on loan
from Universidad Catolica.
Sevilla are eighth in La Liga and have a King's Cup
semi-final second leg away to Real Madrid next week, in which
they trail 1-0.
