Sevilla captain Ivan Rakitic is reportedly a target for Real Madrid.

Sevilla captain Ivan Rakitic has reportedly emerged as a target for Real Madrid.

The Croatian international has impressed with his performances for the Andalusians this term, and Los Blancos are said to be keen.

According to COPE, Madrid's interest has been the reason for the continued delay over Rakitic's new contract at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

The 26-year-old has a release clause of €40m (£33m).
