Dutch coach Ronald Koeman, Barcelona coach, sent a direct message to the player about his future, assuring him that he no longer has a place in the Camp Nou castle, according to a Catalan press report.
It is about the Blaugrana player, Ravinia Alcantara, who fought last season on loan at Celta Vigo, before returning to Barcelona this summer.
The Catalan newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” highlighted that Rafinha was eliminated from the Barca list against Girona, for the second match in a row, after his absence against Nastic Tarragona as well, in a direct message from Coman, stating that the midfielder is out of his accounts.
There remains a season in Rafinha’s contract with Barcelona, and although he is fluent in more than one center in the middle of the field, he, in turn, realized the difficulty of securing a place in Koeman’s squad.
The Brazilian has a penalty clause of 16 million euros, which is a large sum for Celta Vigo or Inter Milan, at the moment, which are the two most important teams interested in joining him.
However, Barcelona may have to reduce this number, in order to make any material profit, to avoid the player leaving for free next summer.
