Rafinha set for Barca renewal

Rafael Alcantara, known as Rafinha, will reportedly put pen to paper on a new three-year contract at Barcelona tomorrow.

The 20-year-old younger brother of Thiago Alcantara has been in talks with the Catalans these past few weeks to extend his current deal beyond its June 2014 expiry, ahead of then sending him out on loan for a season.

It is believed that the midfielder, who has a current buyout clause set at €30m, will be handed a two-year extension, to take him through to June 2016.

Former Barcelona B Coach Luis Enrique is reportedly keen to land the youngster on a season long loan, once he has settled on a new deal at the Camp Nou.
