Barcelona’s Rafinha Alcantara has spoken up regarding his return to the Camp Nou after a loan at Inter Milan. Rafinha has been quite vocal about his enjoyment of Inter as a club in the past. It seemed as if a permanent move was imminent, but it never came to fruition.

“Inter was a spectacular experience,” Rafinha said.

“It was a style of football and a language I didn’t know. It was important for me to get back to playing as many games as possible after my injury. I knew my ability to adapt quickly would be important.

“Thanks to my teammates and the Nerazzurri fans, I was very well received and I regained my confidence in playing my style of football.

“I had a great time at Inter and I was thinking of staying. I was really convinced that with qualification for the Champions League I’d have stayed, but it didn’t happen.

“Football is still a business and sometimes people’s wishes aren’t fulfilled. Right now I’m a Barcelona player.

“I still haven’t met with the club, but in my head I have the idea of presenting myself for pre-season training on July 11 and then we’ll see.

“I’m ready for anything.”

How long Rafinha will be at Barcelona is a mystery, although it’s very clear he wishes the Inter move was permanent, he seems to be taking the right attitude regarding his return to Barcelona.
