Barcelona coach Valverde confirms Rafinha set to leave

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde confirmed yesterday that Rafinha is on his way to Inter Milan.

Following the arrivals of Philippe Coutinho and Yerry Mina, Barcelona have made moves to streamline their squad and it's expected that Rafinha will depart for Inter, a move which Valverde all but confirmed.

"He isn't going to train today, he has permission to solve a contractual issue," he admitted.

"I spoke to him; he has been injured for a long time and with the season underway and further signings it would be difficult for him to play.

"He has given 100 percent to the group and the other day he played because I thought he would do well."
