FC Barcelona will take the negotiations for Raphinha calmly. The board knows that the player wants to wear the Blaugrana shirt and will wait for an offer from Barça, which will mainly depend on the future of Leeds
While the Leeds United plays the permanence, Raphael Dias Belloli, better known like Raphinha, awaits by the opening of the market of passes of summer to resolve his future. The Brazilian has agreement with the white group until June of 2024 and his clause of rescission is of 50 million euros, which can go down to the half if the Leeds descends the weekend in the Premier League.
In this sense, the player of 25 years has clear what has to do in the weeks to come. If the Leeds descends, will listen offers to go out of England. If his team attains the save, probably will remain in Elland Road because of his cost. In any one of the cases, the priority of the forward is to await by an offer of the FC Barcelona, since his priority is to play in the group blaugrana.
To a day of the end of the tournament, the group directed by Jesse Marsch situates in the place 17 of the table with 35 points, one more than the Burnley, but with a party more. To keep in the elite of the English football, the ones of Elland Road have to win to the Brentford (decimoprimero) and tie that the Burnley do not win any of the two parties that has slopes (the Thursday in front of Aston Villa and the Sunday home in front of Newcastle).
With 10 goals and 3 assistances in 35 parties with the Leeds during the 2021-22, Raphinha has done sufficient merits to reach a value of market of 45 'kilos' in Transfermarkt. However, the Barça would not be had to pay the 50 million euros that asks the English club, more if negotiate from the 25 'kilos' that would cost the traspaso if it consummates the descent of the whites. The key for 'tie' to Raphinha, more than the wish of the player, has to see with his agent: Deco.
Deco Already has 'tied' to Raphinha
The ex midfield player blaugrana, in addition to driving an agency of representation of footballers, now also forms part of the sportive direction culé like adviser of signings and 'cazatalentos' in the region sudamericana. In this sense, Deco has advised to Raphinha expect by the offer of the Barça, which could arrive once define the future of the Leeds in the Premier and the future of several forwards of the staff, between them Martin Braithwaite, Luuk of Jong and Memphis Depay.
In this moment, the club has until nine forwards, too much for a staff with problems of limit salarial. For the 2022-23, only Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang seem to have his safe place in the project of Xavi Hernández. With the future of Ousmane Dembélé in the air and the latent possibility to incorporate to Robert Lewandowski, the market veraniego will be very intense in Catalonia and Raphinha does not have another option that be patient. Will have opportunity to arrive to the Barcelona?
