The FC Barcelona has decided to yield to Rafinha Alcántara to the Celtic of Vigo this season. The culés have done it official in the afternoon of this Monday two September, to few hours of the closing of the market of signings in Spain. The Hispanic-Brazilian has prolonged his agreement until June of 2021 to be able to go out course to Vigo.

The course of the mediapunta is a news something surprising as it is the staff in these moments. With Leo Messi, Ousmane Dembélé and Luis Suárez lesionado, the Barça has grave problems in his front of attack. Antoine Griezmann shined against the Betis as 'false 9', but in front of Osasuna did not appear and hardly touched the ball. The own French has recognised that prefers to play with a forward at the side because it feels more comfortable.

Rafinha Was of the few players of the first able team to play in any one of the three positions of attack. The Brazilian is not leading, but has showed that it can play of 'false 9', with what could have been of big utility along the season. Luis Suárez does not have a '9' pure acting, Griezmann does not want to play here and the canterano could have been a big option in as that meetings.

But no only it is a tactical subject, deportivamente Rafinha also was giving a big performance in this start of course. It was one of the best in the pre-season and also has shined in the three parties of League contested. It saw him with a lot of win and very in shape, showing that it has left backwards his injury. Ernesto Valverde even left to fall that it had he and that it could remain to play.

It is by all these reasons by which costs to understand that the Barcelona have decided to give off of him in the last day of market. The team has not begun well the campaign and has seen that if there are injuries the staff is not so long as it could seem. A season is very long and to have remained, a Rafinha healthy could have been very important.

Valverde Trusts Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez

The course of the Hispanic-Brazilian opens the doors of the first team of stops in pair to Ansu Fati and to Carles Pérez. With the cession of Rafinha, the club commands the message that it trusts that the two canteranos do the functions that could have done the one of Sao Paulo. With the headlines lesionados, Ansu and Carles will have minutes and opportunities to shine. Valverde Trusts they and the own Barça seems that also. It will be necessary to expect to final of course to see if it has been good idea this cession or if the Barcelona finish missing to the '12'.
