Rafinha, who finishes his contract with Barça next June, is one of the players that the Barça club has priority to transfer
The 'operation gone out' is part of the duties that the sportive direction of the FC Barcelona has of face to what remains of period of traspasos. In this sense, the one of Rafinha Alcántara is one of the names that sound with more strength to abandon the Camp Nou during the next weeks.
There are two reasons that do that traspasar to Rafinha have turned into something necessary. The first is that the Hispanic-Brazilian would have very few opportunities to play with the first team because of the competition, so much in the positions of the centre of the field as in the ones of the forward, without having the possible signing of Neymar.
The second reason by which Rafinha is transferible is that his agreement finalises in June of 2020, by what if the Hispanic-Brazilian does not abandon the Camp Nou this summer or the next month of January, will be able to go free. The fact that there is haste in resolving his traspaso this summer is that, if it expects to winter, would repeat the case of Munir, that was traspasado to the Seville by one million euros, a figure irrisoria.
The good news for the culés in this sense is that in Valencia, the club that more interest has showed by fichar to Rafinha, has recovered the institutional stability. Marcelino García Toral, technician of the team of the capital of the Turia, wants a reinforcement for the centre of the field and Rafinha, by polivalencia and quality, is one of his favourites.
Offer to the drop of Valencia
The problem keeps on being that in Mestalla are not had to throw the house by the window for fichar to Rafinha. The FC Barcelona asked a figure of around 15 million euros for the sale of the Hispanic-Brazilian, whereas Valencia is not willing neither to pay so much neither to do it by a fixed quantity of money, but with variables.
The fact that Rafinha have suffered two grave injuries in the knee does that the 'che' do not want to risk paying a fixed quantity by him by a player that has had so little fortune with the physical problems. In case that with Valencia do not arrive to an agreement, the Italian league is another option for him, although Ernesto Valverde would not have problems in doing him a gap in the staff.
