But the Brazil international's father has now denied such talk and maintained his son is settled at the Camp Nou.

"The important thing is that he's feeling better," Mazinho told Radio Marca.

"Our concern is that he recovers, that he can return to a football pitch. We haven't talked to anyone because with an injured player, it's difficult to negotiate anything with other clubs.

"Besides, we have no interest [in leaving] either. We have a contract with Barca.

"Rafinha's fine, he's recovering, carrying out his work, and he'll be back soon. I've had a perfect relationship with Barca since 2005 and I have no complaints."

Rafinha started 16 games in all competitions for the Spanish giants last season. He has missed the start of the new campaign due to a knee injury.
