Brazil international Rafinha has agreed a new a four-year contract extension at Barcelona.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder’s new deal will keep him at the Nou Camp until summer 2020.

A statement from the defending European champions read: “An agreement has been reached with Rafael Alcantara, ‘Rafinha’, to extend his contract until 30 June 2020.

“His buyout clause has been set at 75m (£54m) euros, and the new contract will be signed over the next few days.”

Rafinha, who is currently sidelined until March after tearing his cruciate ligament during a Champions League game at Roma, came through the ranks and joined the club’s first team in 2014 following a successful season on loan at Celta Vigo.

He made just 21 starts in all competitions for the Blaugrana last season but made his Brazil debut last month.
