Rafinha, whose brother, Thiago, left Barca for Bayern Munich on Sunday, recently penned a new three-year contract at the Camp Nou.

However, the 20-year-old will spend the coming season at Celta Vigo to gain further top-flight experience.

A statement on Barcelona’s official website read: “FC Barcelona and Celta have agreed to terms for the player Rafael Alcantara, who will join the Celestes for the 2013-14 season on loan.”

Celta, led by former Barcelona B coach Luis Enrique, have already signed centre-back Andreu Fontas from the Blaugrana.
