The Spanish publication have controversially reported that the Brazilian made a call to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez asking whether the La Liga champions would be interested in signing him. It seems however that Perez and Real are not looking to make an offer for the 23 year old.
The midfielder has also been linked with a move to Arsenal over the past few weeks in Spain. In Sport a couple of weeks ago, there was the first mention that the Gunners were interested in the player. That was followed by news in Marca this week that he could be used as part of the offer Barca will make for right back Hector Bellerin.
It looks like Valencia are the keenest to land Rafinha who it seems is unsettled at the Camp Nou, if Don Balon is to be believed. Whether Arsenal will consider a move for the player after these latest developments, we will have to wait and see.
