Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic remains coy when questioned on a possible move to Real Madrid.

Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic has said that talk of a move to Real Madrid can wait until after the World Cup this summer.

The Croatian is widely regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders in European football, with a number of clubs believed to hold a strong interest in his services.

Real Madrid have been linked with a move over the last couple of months, but the 26-year-old has remained coy on a potential move.

"Real Madrid? We should wait for this Europa League final, also for the World Cup final, then we'll see," he told Kicker.

"This year we have taken a great step forward, but it's the great goal for every player to play in the Champions League."

Rakitic has scored 15 times for Sevilla this season.
