Rafinha has sent Inter another very strong message, the Tottenham-linked
man making it clear that he sees his future at the San Siro. The Spanish-Brazilian star joined on a loan deal last season with option to buy, and quickly established himself as one of the leading lights of the midfield as the Nerazzurri nabbed fourth place against all the odds to earn a return to the Champions League. But the 24-year-old came with a €35 million buyout clause which Inter didn’t meet, presumably for Financial Fair Play reasons. He has since been linked with a move to the Premier League, as well as Lazio. Rafinha has found life back in Catalonia difficult, and said in a recent interview: “I’d tell you [about my future] if I knew. A lot of things have been said about me recently.
"I spent some splendid months at Inter, and I would have liked to continue playing there, I’d like to return there but I am a Barcelona player now.
My objective is to play, any player would want to play. I don’t know if this will be here or elsewhere but I want to play.”
