Raphinha’s transfer saga is finally set to reach a conclusion with the player now feeling that his transfer to Barcelona is very close. The Spanish side have submitted a verbal bid worth €72 million for the player.
Once they send in a formal bid, Leeds United might consider accepting it. They have also an offer from Chelsea, but the player has been holding out for a move to Camp Nou. And now, he might be getting what he wants with the Spanish club coming mighty close to reaching an agreement with the Yorkshire club.
Raphinha transfer saga to draw to a close soon
The Premier League club were pushing for Barcelona to wrap up the signing as soon as possible. And now, it seems that the Blaugrana will be submitting an official bid to finalise the transfer in the coming days.
Raphinha and his agent, Deco, who is a scout for Barcelona, had agreed personal terms over a five-year deal months ago. But, they were unable to come to an agreement with Leeds over the transfer fee. And after months of negotiations, they have finally managed to come to an agreement.
Barcelona are also expected to renew the contract of Ousmane Dembele in the coming days. The Frenchman could be a part of the squad alongside the Brazilian if Xavi decides to include them both, and if the board can afford both their wages.
