The 20-year-old, the younger brother of Bayern Munich-bound Thiago Alcantara, has made a handful of senior appearances at the Nou Camp and will link up with former Barcelona B coach Luis Enrique in Galicia.

The son of 1994 World Cup-winner Mazinho, Under-20 international Rafinha switched allegiance from Spain to Brazil last year.

Rafinha plays primarily as an attacking midfielder and scored 10 goals for Barca's B team in 2012-13.

He will help fill the gap left by the departure of Iago Aspas following his transfer to Liverpool.
