As we announced to you exclusively on our site at the beginning of the week, Paris Saint-Germain has started its downsizing mission in order to lighten its workforce and is about to complete a first start for the winter transfer window. Lacking playing time, having only five appearances in Ligue 1 and not being registered in the Champions League, Rafinha is in the process of signing for Real Sociedad.
The Spanish daily El Diario Vasco confirms our information and announces that most of the details have been finalized between the two clubs. There remains the medical examination to pass for the Brazilian midfielder before formalizing the transfer at the beginning of next week. The former Barça could even join his new teammates next Tuesday but will not be able to play an official match until January 5, 2022 in the Copa del Rey.
