Barcelona’s Offer For Raphinha Is Lower Than Chelsea’s Accepted Offer
Leeds United’s Raphinha is now a Barcelona player as the La Liga giant’s bid for the Brazilian was accepted on Tuesday.
The Catalan side will pay an initial €58m to the Premier League club, plus €7m in add-ons, and the winger is set to sign a five-year contract to move to Camp Nou. The Brazilian international reached an agreement with Barca over personal terms weeks ago but was waiting for the final step, which was for Barca to agree a fee with Leeds.
Leeds had superior financial offers for Raphinha from Chelsea, Tottenham, and Arsenal, according to Mundo Deportivo, but the player wanted to join Xavi’s squad more than anyone else, and now his wish is set to come through.
