For the one of Carry Cheerful, dress of blaugrana was his big aim from principles of year and so much he like his agent, Deco, did all the possible so that the club attained to have priority in the bidding, still when the offer of Chelsea was better. The group 'blue' offered until 75 'kilos' by the traspaso of the '10', but the insistence of the player of 25 years forced to the directive of the Leeds to finish accepting the offer culé, that neither leaves to be very attractive.
With a current market value of 45 million euros on Transfermarkt, Barça will end up paying a total of 67 'kilos' for a striker who barely played two seasons in the elite of English football (17 goals and 12 assists in 65 games ). In that sense, the bet on the winger is still risky, but the club is confident that the striker will exploit his full potential under Xavi Hernández's orders.
Of the same way, the expectations of the '10' are very high, since his dream always was to try emulate to his idols in the Barça, such is the case of 'cracks' as Romário, Ronaldo Nazário, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho Gaúcho and Neymar Jr. In fact, Raphinha expects to turn into the 'successor' of Neymar, since from the exit of the forward to Paris Saint-Germain any Brazilian has attained to triumph in the Camp Nou. The last in fracasar was Arthur Melo, the one who finished leaving to the Juventus in 2020.
Raphinha, the costliest signing of the second 'was Laporta'
Of this way, the Brazilian will turn into the costliest signing of the second mandate of Joan Laporta in the Barça, after the 55 million euros credited to the Manchester City in January by Ferran Torres. Except surprise, the one of Carry Cheerful will conserve this status at least until 2023, since hardly the club will do a purchase by an upper upper value in this window of passes.
Only if Frenkie of Jong finish leaving would contemplate a big outlay to replace him, being Bernardo Silva the favourite of the directive. Another appearance for confirming will be the wage of Raphinha, the one who could sign by a near wage to the 7 million net euros by season. In the Leeds, the Brazilian won 3.6 'kilos' by season, a quantity that had increased if it remained in Yorkshire.
