Significant changes are expected to take place in the FC Barcelona squad for the next season. The forward line is particularly up for a change as it has been the least impressive of the team’s components this season.

One of the foremost objectives for FC Barcelona this season is the signing of Lionel Messi. The Argentine’s contract with PSG ends at the end of this season, and as things stand, there are no signs of the two parties agreeing to a renewal.

As a result, FC Barcelona are increasingly optimistic about getting their legend back with the club for a season or two. Messi’s return can have significant implications for the team and the squad. One such implication will be the decreased minutes of forwards already present in the team.

As a result, SPORT reports that Raphinha is already considering his option for the next season, as he knows that his minutes on the pitch will be significantly reduced when Lionel Messi comes back to the club.

Furthermore, Ousmane Dembele has almost recovered from his injury, which means he will be starting for the club once again when he gains 100% fitness. As Raphinha and Dembele perform the best on similar positions on the wing, the Brazilian will see his importance for the team further reduced.

Raphinha has generated interest from a number of Premier League sides and already has experience of English top-tier football as he spent a number of years at Leeds United before moving to FC Barcelona.

While at the Catalan club, the Brazilian has been decent and has reached double figures in terms of goals and assists. However, he wants to ensure that his decreased importance in the FC Barcelona squad does not result in him being sidelined from the Brazilian National team as well.

The Selecao have a wealth of forwards in the form of Neymar, Vini Jr., Rodrygo, and Antony, to name a few, and its forward line is highly competitive. In such a scenario, Raphinha is considering his options to ensure that he gets quality minutes on the pitch, which will help him retain his position in his national team as well.
