Already it does a lot of weeks that Valencia round some footballers of the FC Barcelona. The first was Denis Suárez, that was very of the like of Marcelino García Toral, technical che, but the Galician midfield player opted for going back to his earth to play in the Celtic of Vigo. The option in the recámara of the club of Mestalla was -and keep on being- the one of Rafinha Alcántara.

The Hispanic-Brazilian was one of the footballers of the first team that the FC Barcelona considered prescindible and susceptible of traspaso to another team, but in the last weeks has produced a change of radical stage that complicates a lot no only the arrival of Rafinha to Valencia, but directly the goodbye of the small of the Alcántara of the Camp Nou.

In the first place, because the level that has showed during the pre-season and in the start of the championship suspender belt has been very good, something that has done that Ernesto Valverde have interest in retaining him. We are in front of a footballer of big quality to the that the injuries have not respected but that, when it plays, always fulfils. Without going more far, Rafinha was of the few that played well in Saint Mamés against the AthleticClub .

The second circumstance that hampers his traspaso before the closing of market -that will produce the next day 2 September- is the injury of Ousmane Dembélé, that will keep of drop to the French extreme during the next five weeks. Or, what is the same, the Txingurri will lose to the 'mosquito' for the next three parties of League and can that for a chamber.

To the physical problems it is necessary to add also the ones of Luis Suárez and that Leo Messi still is recovering of a muscular injury. Antoine Griezmann is the only forward that is to the one hundred by one hundred physically and of course, this opens wide open the doors of the titularity to Rafinha. The Hispanic-Brazilian has qualities that like to Valverde and no only by his quality, but also by a polivalencia that allows him act like forward or midfield player.

Rafinha Finishes agreement in 2020

The negative part of no traspasar to Rafinha is the risk that in June of 2020 can leave without that the FC Barcelona perceive neither an alone euro by his course. The midfield player finishes agreement in less than a year and in January will be free to negotiate free his 'escape' if before the FC Barcelona does not achieve to renew him.
