Ivan Rakitić has completed his contract termination at Sevilla, paving the way for a move to Saudi Pro League side Al Shabab, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Croatian midfielder, 33, has been at Sevilla since 2015, helping the club to win the Europa League three times. He was also a key member of the Croatia team that reached the World Cup final in 2018.
Rakitić is a versatile midfielder who can play in a variety of positions. He is known for his passing, dribbling, and shooting ability.
Al Shabab are a major club in Saudi Arabia and are looking to improve their squad in order to compete for the league title. The club have already signed several high-profile players in recent months, including Carlos Vela, Odion Ighalo, and André Carrillo.
The addition of Rakitić would be a major coup for Al Shabab. He would bring a wealth of experience and talent to the team, and he would be a valuable asset for the club’s ambitions.
