Rafinha got injured last Wednesday in Rome after a tackle of Radja Nainggolan just 56 seconds after entering the field. Barcelona's doctor immediately asked for the substitution and Rafinha left the field on a stretcher.

The Brazilian has torn right Anterior Cruciate Ligament

This morning, in Barcelona, the player has undergone some medical tests. As reported by the club, he has suffered a tear to the anterior cruciate ligament in his right leg. He will undergo surgery in the coming days.

FC Barcelona has not announced the period of recovery, but it's quite probable that Rafinha miss the rest of the season. This fact would allow Barcelona to sign a player out of the market, but due to FIFA's sanction they won't be able to do so until January.
