Barcelona reject Inter Milan bid for Rafinha

Spanish daily newspaper Marca understands that Inter Milan are no closer to signing Barcelona midfielder Rafinha.

The Nerazzurri hope to sign the Brazilian on loan with an option to buy, and they have been in talks with the Catalans for a couple of weeks now.

But, while Inter Milan hope to include an optional €20 million buy-out clause, Barcelona want an obligatory €35 million clause included.

The Nerazzurri are at the moment not prepared to accept the proposed terms as they want the player to prove his fitness after an eight-month lay-off before making a decision whether to sign him outright.

Rafinha resumed training in December after the lengthy spell on the sidelines, but he has yet to be included in a matchday squad this season.
