Valencia in Talks to Sign Rafinha from Barcelona

Valencia are in negotiations with Barcelona over the signing of midfielder Rafinha, with the Catalan club valuing their player at between €15 million (£13m/$16m) and €20 million (£17m/$21m), sources familiar with the deal have confirmed to Goal.

Rafinha has a year left on his current deal at Camp Nou but Barca are keen to cash in on the Brazilian as they look to offload a number of players in order to bring in big-money signings this summer.

Barca are also concerned by the 26-year-old’s injury record as he has suffered a number of serious problems in recent seasons, including two torn ligaments.

Rafinha made just five La Liga appearances last term and failed to feature after November due to a ruptured cruciate ligament.

He has now recovered from the problem though and is expected to be fit for pre-season.

Valencia head coach Marcelino is keen on Rafinha’s versatility, as he has been used in a number of roles for Barca, including central midfield, full-back and on the wing.
