Barcelona Reportedly Beat Chelsea to Raphinha’s Deal
The Laliga side have submitted a bid of €58 million which is expected to increase to €68 million with add-ons inclusive. The Premier League club are expected to accept the bid according to transfer news expert, Fabrizio Romano on Tuesday, July 12th, 2022.
Leeds United have reportedly agreed on a deal with Chelsea Football Club for the player but Raphinha was keen on a move to Barcelona hence why the deal to the Stamford Bridge club was halted. However, this transfer will only see the light of day when Barcelona are able to register the player according to the laws in La Liga.
Raphinha has always wanted a move to Barcelona after he agreed on personal terms with the club about four months ago.
