Inter Milan end the pursuit for Barcelona Midfielder Rafinha

In January last season, Inter Milan signed  Barca central midfielder Rafinha on loan. Rafinha joined the club to help the Inter  qualify for the Champions League, which they achieved with a final day victory against SS Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico. Inter’s loan for Rafinha actually included an obligation to buy if Inter qualified for UCL, yet the team refused to pay, despite qualifying, due to the threat of financial fair play regulations.

Rafinha’s purchase cost was €38 million, just a little too much for Inter to justify, and the Catalans ar not ready to let him go any cheaper. Rafinha has had a distinct lack of minutes this season, like fellow Brazilian Malcom, playing just 109 minutes. Rafinha’s contract with Barcelona will expires in 2020 and the midfielder would like Inter to try again, still inter milan would only likely return to Rafinha if Barcelona were to offer a loan without obligation-to-buy, or a heavy discount the player’s initial price.

Now, Rafinha will push to leave Barcelona in January and perhaps then the Brazilian can finally get his move permanently away from Camp Nou.
