Rafinha set to conclude Bayern switch

Posted on May 31, 2011


BAYEN MUNICH are set to confirm the signing of Genoa defender Rafinha this afternoon for €5.3m, according to BILD.

The former Schalke full-back arrived in Munich last night and is set to sign a three-year deal with the Bavarian giants.

He told BILD: “I’m tired from the long journey would now like to say anything particularly great.

“I will do now for the first time things that are waiting and then say something to everything.”

The Brazilian international spent five years in Gelsenkirchen before moving to Italian side Genoa last summer on a four-year contract.

Rafinha will be the second signing for FC Bayern so far following Nils Petersen’s move from Energie Cottbus two weeks ago.
