Rafinha, all-terrain talent

A deadline-day arrival in the French capital, the Brazil international will give the French champions greater strength in depth and plenty of quality.

The love story between Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil just got another chapter with Rafinha arriving to bring down the curtain on the summer transfer window.

Sao Paulo-born, Rafinha went to Spain when his father played for Valencia, and - like his brother Thiago Alcantâra - joined Barcelona's La Masia youth academy.

He first played for Luis Enrique in the Catalan club's reserve side before joining the first-team squad under Pep Guardiola after a season on loan at Celta Vigo. In five seasons with Barcelona and a season-long loan at Inter Milan (2017-18), he won 3 La Liga titles, four Copas del Rey, four Spanish Super Cups, and the UEFA Champions League in 2014-15.

On the international scene, the versatile midfielder has also shone, winning the 2016 Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro alongside his new Paris teammates Marquinhos and Neymar Jr. He returned to Celta on loan last season, scoring four goals in 30 competitive games.

The midfielder now faces a new challenge. He can play high up the pitch, fill a deeper role, and help teammates shine and snuff out opponents, making him an all-terrain talent that has what it takes to be a success in a new league and a new country.
