Father urges Barcelona and Inter Milan to find Rafinha solution

The father of Barcelona midfielder Rafinha says they and Inter Milan need to find a solution.

On-loan at Inter, Rafinha has declared he wants to stay at the San Siro.

His father, Mazinho, said: "The Champions League has nothing to do with Rafa's future. It's all up to Inter. What he had to do, he's done. It's a question of economics. Inter and Barca will have to find a suluton. We would like to know as soon as possible what Inter are thinking about to study the situation and help the two clubs arrive at a deal to keep Rafa at Inter.

"I still don't know what Inter have decided and even less about Barca. However we make it clear that we are happy in Milan and we don't want to start from zero. An economic effort? I think Rafinha has shown in all senses he likes Inter. And his salary is not high, that's normal.

"Rafinha likes (Spalletti, the coach) and although he's not used to his system of play, it seems the facts are there to show that he can do whatever the coach wants well. Spalletti has also helped him grow physically as well as tactically."
