Barcelona and Inter Milan have reached a deal to send Rafinha Alcantara to Italy on loan until the end of the season.
Negotiations were advanced and eventually progressed when the sides agreed on a vital detail about the Brazilian's future beyond this season.
He will move on loan but if Inter Milan reach the Champions League, they will be obliged to buy him for 35 million euros. A number that will be 3m euros bigger if he meets various variables in the deal.
The Barcelona cantera player, thus, featured for the last time against Espanyol in the Copa del Rey last Wednesday.
