Barcelona could be set for an unexpected windfall if Paris Saint-Germain sell Rafinha in the summer transfer window.

The Brazilian is reportedly surplus to requirements at the Parc des Princes and has a number of clubs interested in his services, according to Mundo Deportivo.

PSG value Rafinha at €10 million but Barca would be due 35 per cent of any transfer which would see the Catalans net around €3.5m.

Serie A sides AC Milan and Lazio are both said to be keen on the Brazilian who enjoyed a good spell on loan with Inter back in 2018.

The Premier League is also a potential destination for the former Barca man. Aston Villa are also mentioned as admirers of the 28-year-old.

Rafinha joined Barca at the age of 13 but moved to PSG on a free transfer in October in the final hours of the transfer window. The midfielder signed a three-year contract that included a number of variables and a percentage of any future sale.

The Brazilian went on to make 32 appearances for the French side in all competitions in 2020-21 but appears to have no future at the club under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.
