Ivan Rakitić (born 10 March 1988) is a Swiss-born Croatian footballer who plays for Sevilla FC and the Croatian national team.

Born in Möhlin, he started his professional career at Swiss giants Basel and spent two seasons with them before establishing popularity for his time in the German Bundesliga with Schalke 04. Although naturally a product of Switzerland's youth level, Rakitić pledged his international career to his native parentage of Croatia instead.
