PSG close to Rafinha deal with Flamengo

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 26 (IANS): Paris Saint-Germain target Rafinha is reportedly on the verge of signing a contract extension with Brazilian giants Flamengo.

The 19-year-old forward has agreed in principle to a five-year deal with a buy-out clause of 40 million euros. Rafinha has been followed by Paris Saint-German since former Brazil star Zico recommended the teenager to the French club's top officials in 2009, reports Xinhua.

Zico has been a vocal supporter of the star and recently criticised his former club for not giving the youngster more chances in the first team.

Flamengo is keen to tie the player to a new deal before his current contract expires in March 2014, when he could leave as a free agent.
