Celta Vigo approach Barcelona for Rafinha

Celta Vigo have approached Barcelona for Rafinha.

Sport says Celta have asked Barcelona for Rafinha on loan in January and it's likely a deal could be done in the coming days.

The Brazilian is back in training and has been cleared to return to action after missing the last nine months with an injury.

However, rather than with Barça, the next phase of his recovery is likely to be away from Camp Nou, with Celta for a second time.

Rafinha played for the Galician club when Luis Enrique was in charge and could now return to work under Juan Carlos Unzue, who was Lucho's assistant at Celta and Barcelona.
