Barcelona midfielder Rafinha Alcantara admits his future is uncertain as recent speculation links him with a swap-plus-cash deal for Hector Bellerín.
The possibility of a cash-plus-player deal is highly unlikely, but speculation has linked Arsenal with a range of audacious moves to soften the blow of losing Bellerin, who isn’t actually going anywhere
Rafinha, currently recovering from a serious meniscus injury, enjoyed an impressive campaign under Luis Enrique last term with seven goals and five assists (across all competitions, 28 appearances).
With that being said, it’s looks like he will be let go this summer as Barcelona look to strengthen.
Whether he finds himself in the Premier League remains to be seen with both Liverpool and Tottenham reportedly interested, though news of a possible swap deal with Arsenal has intensified recently.
“My future is open and only God knows what will happen,” Rafinha stated during an interview with Marca.
“I am a Barcelona player and the most important thing now is to recover from my knee injury and then you will see what happens. All I can say is that everything is open.”
Spanish newspapers Mundo Deportivo and the aforementioned Marca have hinted that the midfielder would be open to a move, as it’d help increase his chances of representing Brazil at next year’s World Cup in Russia.
He is said to be valued at around €30m (£26.4m).
