Doha, 4 September 2022 - According to an official announcement from the club, PSG Brazilian midfielder Rafinha has left the club and joined Al Arabi Qatar on a permanent move on a contract that is reported as running for two years, according to Fabrizio Romano.
According to Foot Mercato, Qatari Stars League side Al Arabi SC were confident weeks ago in securing the services of PSG midfielder Rafinha, who have been lobbying the player since mid august.
It was reported weeks that Paris Saint-Germain could be set to part ways with another player on their transfer list for this summer, as Brazilian midfielder Rafinha had attracted interest from Qatari club Al Arabi SC.
The 29-year-old spent the second half of last season out on loan at Real Sociedad, making 17 appearances for the Basques and chipping in with one goal as they finished in sixth place.
The former Barcelona man has been with PSG for the last two years, and has turned out 23 times in the league in his first campaign before seeing his playing time dramatically decrease the following year.
Reports earlier this month had indicated that the midfielder had been close to a move to the Middle East, with one year left on his contract in the capital, but had himself pulled out of the deal over personal reasons. It remains to be seen whether Rafinha will be open to this latest potential destination, as his time at PSG looks definitively up.
