Barcelona fans will have to get used to a series of emotional messages at this time as players will be leaving the club in droves this summer.

Already, there is a consensus on the need to overhaul the present Barcelona team as constituted so at least five-six players are expected to leave Nou Camp at this period.

One of the old faces that have opted for life elsewhere is Ivan Rakitic who has reunited with Sevilla.

In an emotional message posted on his Twitter on Wednesday,  the energetic midfielder thanked all for making his six-year at the Catalan club memorable.

He wrote: I arrived at @FCBarcelona 6 years ago. Today, I am turning a wonderful page in my career. It has been an honor to wear this jersey. I would like to thank everyone without exception. My family, my teammates, the coaches, the staff, the club employees, and the fans. See you soon.

Six years and 13 trophies

Rakitic is leaving Barça after six glittering seasons, in which he has played a key role in winning no fewer than 13 titles:

Champions League: 1
La Liga: 4
Copa del Rey: 4
Club World Cup: 1
European Super Cup: 1
Spanish Super Cup: 2

The Swiss-born Croatian joined FC Barcelona from Sevilla in the summer of 2014.
