Barcelona is chasing the signature of Leeds united’s Raphinha. Juan Laporta and his team do not have the financial power to pull through.
According to reports, the winger’s move depends on the future of Ousmane Dembele. Xavi is a long time admirer of Raphinha and would want to work with him.
The Brazilian market price could have gone down to 20 million euros had Leeds been relegated. Barcelona are also trying to convince Dembele to stay.
Several clubs are interested in signing Dembele, including French giants Paris Saint-Germain. Barca will be meeting the Frenchman’s representatives this week to finalise everything.
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel is interested in bringing the winger to the club. Tuchel worked with Dembele in Dortmund. Xavi speaks highly of the French winger.
This could be his last game, but it could also be the last game for others. I like him and he can help us in the future. It depends on the negotiations. Xavi added.
Raphinha will be a valuable player to Barcelona. The Brazillian fit in Xavi’s tactics perfectly. The asking price of Leeds United could collapse the deal for the Catalans. Follow Us for more exclusive sports news updates. We are also on all social media platforms.
