The Blaugrana are the latest team to express interest in Raphinha, a Brazilian winger who now plays for Leeds United. The Blaugrana have been in contact with Raphinha’s agency to discuss a possible summer deal. The player, on the other hand, is said to be keen on a move to the Camp Nou.
The Brazilian and Premier League attacker is a versatile player who can play on both flanks and would be an excellent substitute for Ousmane Dembele as well as the player to help the team overcome Erling Haaland.
According to Sport, Xavi supports the transfer and is eager to sign the Brazilian in the summer in order to enhance their squad and compete with Real Madrid.
According to Marca, Leeds United of the Premier League want at least €40 million for the Brazilian winger, despite Barcelona’s original bid of €35 million.
Raphinha is ready to take the next step in her career in Spain.
Raphinha, a Brazilian winger who joined Leeds United for €20 million from Rennes in 2020, has been a revelation. In 57 games, the 25-year-old has scored 15 goals and assisted on another 12.
Despite Leeds United’s struggles in their second season back in the Premier League, clubs are keeping an eye on the talented winger after he proved himself at Premier League level this season, scoring nine goals in 28 games.
Since his debut against Venezuela on October 7, 2021, the former Rennes winger has established himself as a regular starter for the Brazilian national team, making seven games and scoring three goals.
The Yorkshire club has apparently tried to negotiate a new deal with the player in order to take advantage of the interest displayed by other clubs, but he has disputed this and is anxious to move to Spain.
