The Leeds United goes very seriously in this market of summer and is about to to complete his first big sale. British means as 'The Athletic' and 'Yorkshire Post' give by done the sale of the midfield player Kalvin Phillips to the Manchester City by a mount near to the 50 million pounds (58 million euros), which marks a precedent on the price that the whites will demand by Raphinha, aim of the FC Barcelona to replace to Ousmane Dembélé.

Although the future of the Frenchman is in the air, to these heights 'Dembouz' has a foot and half out of the Barça and the '10' of the Leeds is the option number 1 to substitute him. However, further of the self-evident interest of the player of 25 years in dressing the T-shirt blaugrana and of the management of Deco, his representative, to facilitate the negotiations, in Elland Road are decided to invoice a minimum of 50 'kilos' by the traspaso of his goleador and figure in the 2021-22.

In this way, the Leeds gives a warning to the Barça with the negotiations by Kalvin Phillips. The midfield player is valued in 50 million euros in Transfermarkt and the City will have to pay a very similar price by his signing, to request of Pep Guardiola to replace to a Fernandinho that will abandon the free club after nine seasons. Raphinha, by his part, is priced in 45 'kilos' and comes to convert 11 goals and 3 assistances in 36 parties that were keys for the salvation of the ones of Jesse Marsch.

For the Leeds, sell to low cost is not an option in this window of passes. If the ones of Elland Road went down to the EFL Championship, the value of Raphinha went down to 25 million euros, a much more adjusted price to the financial reality of the Barç, but his permanence in the Premier has revalorizado to his 'cracks' and will not leave to happen the opportunity to do box thanks to this factor.

The Arsenal goes with everything to by Raphinha

In addition to his cost, other factors complicate the arrival of the Brazilian to Catalonia. The Arsenal of Mikel Arteta has 100 million euros in box to reinforce his forward in summer and, as 'The Athletic', his intention is to invest this money in Gabriel Jesús and Raphinha. The negotiations by the '9' of the City is very directed and, once resulevan his traspaso, will go to by the one of Carry Cheerful.

It took the things, the priority with Raphinha will have it the one who pay first and is there where the Barça has the ones to lose. For the moment, the club follows working in exits and 'crowbars' that allow to the club go out of his financial problems for, later, begin to bid in the market. For then, maybe the '10' of the Leeds already have new team. In this case, the option B is Ángel Gave María, whose signing also would have the guarantee of the technical body and would produce 'to cost zero'.
