    Offloading them is the right way not to loan them
    Its not about right way or wrong way though. The reality is that a club like Celta absolutely will not pay the wage of these players and the players will not accept any significant pay cut. Only clubs with plenty of money will accept taking on their salaries.

    No matter what you think of Rafinha, having him back will be a boost to the team. I don't think he was ever as bad as Gomes.

    Seems to get better the longer he is not playing according to some on here. Will have zero effect and should be sold.

    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    Vermaelen didn't play for over a year and still a good squad player. Pretty sure Rafinha will remain useful too as he always has been.

    Why should he be sold? Who will you put on the bench? Some 30M player?

    According to rac1, Rafinha is considering an swift exit as he was disappointed not to be in the match squad vs Celta.

    Please keep him and sell Denis! He is a good squad player while Denis is an absolute trash.

    Actually both Rafinha and Denis + Gomes & Turan have to be sold.

    The best thing for him right now would be a 6 months loan. He needs playing time to regain his fitness level than in the summer we can sell him for a better price than we would achieve today.

    He's just injury prone like his brother Thiago. He won't be able to build momentum and improve because every time he gets a good run of games, he gets injured. If I were the board, I would sell him, Denis, Deulofeu, Arda and Gomes after this season and promote our youngsters.

    Appart from Gomes I believe that’s a plan. I don’t think Deulofeu, Rafinha, Denis and Arda will be here next year and Alena will hopefully be promoted.

    Yeah, I was just hoping that Gomes would be gone too but I agree with you though, I also believe that Gomes would still be here next season. The fact that Valverde plays him every game whether he's a starter or a sub says it all.
