Rafinha tips brother Thiago for Barcelona return and discusses own future

Camp Nou return

Rafinha has explained how he wants his brother Thiago Alcantara to return to Barcelona and tips him to succeed if he makes the move.

There has been some decent talk about a potential reunion with Thiago and Barcelona over the past couple of years.

The Spaniard moved to Bayern Munich and initially excelled under Pep Guardiola but has struggled with some injuries and form since.

That has lead to some suggestions that he could make a move and there is nowhere better for him to go than back to Barcelona.

The style of football, the quality he possesses and how he knows the club would make him the perfect heir to Xavi or even Iniesta, which he was expected to be before he left.

Brotherly love

Now, his brother Rafinha has been speaking about his brother and has tipped him to return to the club and cited how he would be fit into the team ‘perfectly’.

‘I want to see Thiago play for Barcelona again,’ Rafinha told El Mundo Deportivo.

‘He would fit into the style of play with this team perfectly and he is familiar with many (of the players).’

Rafinha also discussed his own future having returned from a loan at Inter Milan last season.

He has been tipped for a move away from Barcelona and Tottenham is a potential destination.

‘My own future? I honestly do not know,’ he continued.

‘There is a lot of talk but I am not thinking about it, that is for other people to focus on.

‘I want to play football, whether that is here or somewhere else.’
