The Brazilian joined the Nerazzurri on a six-month loan deal in January, with an option to make the deal permanent in the summer for €35m.
On-loan Barcelona midfielder Rafinha hopes Inter will buy him permanently – “I’m learning Italian, I want to stay here”.
Rafinha has made 10 Serie A appearances since then, providing an assist against Bologna.
“I’m very happy to be here, everything is going well,” the 25-year-old told Premium Sport. “I’m playing, and that
’s important because it allows me to grow and find the right rhythm to reach top condition.
“I’ve been confident from the first day, Inter is a great team and we have the chance to reach our objective [the Champions League].
“I’m learning Italian, I want to stay here. I wanted Inter right away, I feel at home here and I’m happy.”
