Barcelona have recalled loan stars Gerard Deulofeu and Rafinha

Barcelona have confirmed that starlets Gerard Deulofeu and Rafinha will be returning to the club as part of their first-team squad.

Deulofeu spent last season in England with Everton whilst Rafinha remained in Spain with Celta Vigo – but neither will be loaned out next season.

The decision was made by new boss Luis Enrique, and was one of the first following his appointment on a two-year deal.

Enrique knows both players well, having coached them for Barcelona B during his three-years in charge, whilst he also signed Rafinha on-loan for Celta last term.

Both players impressed during their time away from Camp Nou – and interest in the pair was big, but Enrique wants both to remain.

21-year-old midfielder Rafinha, brother of Bayern Munich’s Thiago, has never played for Barcelona’s first-team, whilst Deulofeu has made just two appearances for the Catalan giants.

Reports in Spain suggest that Everton – who wanted Deulofeu back for next season – have requested another Barcelona youngster join them on loan.
