Brazilian midfielder Rafinha will return to Barcelona in the summer after his loan spell at Celta Viga, according to his father.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder has impressed after joining Os Celestes on loan, and it is understood the Galicians are keen on signing him on a permanent deal, despite being under contract at Barcelona until 2016.

However, Rafinha's father, Mazinho, has revealed his son will return to the Catalan giants when his loan expires.

"He is a Barcelona player," Mazinho told La Xarxa.

"But we don't know what will happen in the future, if he will return or be loaned again.

"But Rafinha is working hard to play for Barcelona in the future."

Celta have impressed this season despite losing star man Iago Aspas to Liverpool in the summer, and Mazinho revealed his son is happy to be part of their success.

"Rafinha is very happy at Celta and has been earning the manager's trust," he added.

"We are only thinking about the present and enjoying it every day."
