Sevilla president Jose Castro said that Ivan Rakitic could return to the club over the winter transfer window.

Rakitic has fallen out of favor with Ernesto Valverde at Barcelona.

"Signings are Monchi's thing. It's not about who wants to strengthen the team. We have a great team and we have to think about our options. When the window arrives, if there is any option that Monchi likes, it is a matter between him and the manager," said Castro.

Casto also announced the contract renewal of Bryan Gil.
