Agent: 'Rafinha only wanted Inter'

Rafinha will have his Inter medical on Monday ahead of the loan with €35m option to buy from Barcelona. “Inter is the only option he wanted.”

His agent confirmed the imminent transfer for the Brazilian midfielder, who made his comeback this week after 209 days out with a knee injury.

“Rafinha is very happy to join Inter. I can also tell you that Inter is the only option he wanted,” representative Alex Boesch of The Player Management agency told

“He can offer a Coach great versatility. He is able to play at a very high level in several different positions, has great technique and is also very intelligent tactically.

“The player is 100 per cent fit and has been for a month. He’s in better shape than ever, so there are no doubts on his physical condition. The fans can relax on that score.

“Obviously, all negotiations are difficult, but we knew Inter wanted him and that the player only wanted Inter, so we were confident a deal would be done.

“Inter are one of the biggest clubs in the world, so it’s a great opportunity for Rafinha and we are certain that coming here is a big move.”
