Barça are set to miss out on Raphinha with speculation mounting the Brazilian will sign for Chelsea.
Fabrizio Romano is reporting the Blues reached “full agreement” with Leeds over a move. Now they only need to agree personal terms with the winger.
Barcelona and Arsenal apparently both called Leeds yesterday to talk Raphinha. But both of them didn’t meet Chelsea’s bid of £60 million.
The Telegraph are reporting that Raphinha will be part of a new-look attack at Stamford Bridge following Romelu Lukaku’s departure. The Blues are also hoping that Raheem Sterling will sign from Manchester United.
The winger already agreed personal terms with Barcelona but the Catalans are “not currently in a financial position to make a deal.”
Meanwhile, it looks like Chelsea are out of the race for Dembele, leaving only Barça’s offer on the table. And that’s great news for Barça.
Let’s see if the move of Raphinha to London means that Dembele will stay in Barcelona
