2 new players confirmed for BarçaJuly 24, 2014
Rafael Alcantara (Rafinha) yesterday appeared at an FC Barcelona press conference where he confirmed his return to the club after a year on loan at Celta under Luis Enrique.
Rafinha said that the loan was good for him as he had the chance to play, whereas staying at Barça would have seen him sit out much of the season. The forthcoming season will be the midfielder’s first in the club as a first team player.
Yesterday also saw Barcelona come to an agreement with Valencia for defender Jérémy Mathieu. After agreeing terms at midday the player jumped on a plane for Barcelona and will give a press conference later today after a medical and the official signing.
