Barcelona agrees to extend Rafinha's contract until 2020

November 2, 2015


Barcelona says it has reached an agreement with Brazil midfielder Rafinha to extend his contract through the end of the 2019-20 season.

Rafinha's current contract was set to expire at the end of this season.

Rafinha is currently recovering from surgery to repair right-knee ligaments that he tore in a Champions League match at Roma in September. He was ruled out for at least six months.


The European champions say that Rafinha's buyout clause will be 75 million euros ($83 million).
