It didn’t take Rafinha Alcantara long to settle in over at Inter Milan this year. Barcelona loaned the Brazilian to the Serie A side in January due to a lack of playing time for the midfielder and the move has paid off nicely for Rafinha. He’s had a real chance to settle into life in Italy and get some solid playing time for Inter.

He was recently asked about his time at Inter and whether or not he would wish to stay in Italy.

“I wanted to come to Inter from the very first moment and now I want to stay here.”

Inter and Barcelona still have yet to make the deal complete, and part of that probably depends upon Inter’s ability to qualify for the Champions League. Making the move permanent would seemingly be good for Rafinha, who’s enjoyed his time playing under Inter manager Luciano Spalletti.
