Fc Barcelona lead the race to sign Raphinha: Fabrizio Romano

Fc Barcelona are in very advanced talks to sign 25 years old Brazilian winger Raphinha from Leeds United as per Fabrizio Romano.

Raphinha wants to join FC Barcelona

The player really likes the idea of representing the Catalan giants and is ready to accept the offer put forward by the club. Newcastle United and Chelsea have made their interest in the winger known in recent days. However, Barcelona continue to lead the race as the player’s priority is to join the Spanish Giants.

His agent Deco who shares a good connection with the club and is their chief scout for South America is pushing for the deal to happen. Xavi is fond of the Brazilian and thinks that the player would be a great addition to the team.

Since the continuity of Dembele is not yet guaranteed and the club is not expected to activate the buy option of Traore for 30 million Euros, the chances are high that the Brazilian will end up at Camp Now.

Even though everything is almost done on the part of the Player and the club, nothing has been agreed upon between Fc Barcelona and Leeds United regarding this transfer. Leads United’s future in the premier league is in doubt, and if they get relegated, the release clause of 25 million Euros will get automatically activated and Barca are more than happy to land the player for that amount.

Thus everything depends on whether Leeds gets relegated or not and Barca are waiting for the Premier League season to end so that there will be more clarity on the matter. The Brazilian was in good form for Leeds as he scored 10 goals and assisted 3 from 34 appearances even though the club was going through a bad run in the premier league this season.
