Inter are still waiting for a response from Barcelona, but are expected to finalise the Rafinha deal on loan with €38m option to buy.
The negotiations have been dragging on for some time and the deadline to secure the switch is this weekend.
According to Sportitalia, the offer of loan with €35m option to buy has not fully convinced Barcelona.
The asking price is €40m for the player who made his comeback from injury last night, after almost 10 months on the sidelines.
It’s believed the two clubs will eventually meet in the middle and decide on a loan with €38m option to buy at the end of the season.
