Inter back in for Barca’s Rafinha

Inter look set to return for Barcelona midfielder Rafinha Alcantara after giving up hope on their pursuit of Real Madrid’s Luka Modric, say reports.

Rafinha made 17 appearances in Serie A for the Nerazzuri last season after a January loan, starting 12 of those games and has been linked with a host of clubs this summer.

The Milanese giants had a €40m option to sign the midfielder on a permanent basis but failed to raise the funds in time and Rafinha returned to the Camp Nou.

Sport Mediaset say Inter will now ask again for Rafinha – whose brother Thiago plays for Bayern Munich – on an initial loan deal, with the player receptive of the move.
