Paris (AP) – Paris Saint-Germain signed the Brazilian Rafinha shortly before the transfer deadline. The brother of the old Bayern Munich pro Thiago comes over from FC Barcelona for free and will receive a contract until June 30, 2023, according to the French football champion.
The contract of 27-year-old midfielder Rafinha with the Catalans ran until 2021. Rafinha was trained at the youth academy of FC Barcelona. In the professional team of the Spanish runner-up, he played 90 competitive matches, scoring twelve goals. The Brazilian international, however, failed to secure a permanent place in the star ensemble of the Messi Club. Meanwhile, the 2016 Olympic champion has been loaned out several times to Celta Vigo and Inter Milan
