Leeds United has revealed their final price for the sale of Raphinha to Barcelona
Raphinha is valued at more than £55 million by Leeds United.
Leeds are alleged to have alerted Barcelona that they want a substantial quantity of money for the Brazilian wide man following their survival last month with a thrilling 2-1 win at Brentford on the last day.
According to rumors, if Leeds had lost, Barcelona would have been able to sign the midfielder for about £21 million.
The Catalan giants would almost certainly have to pay a premium for the Brazilian due to the West Yorkshire club’s prolonged existence.
According to sources, Leeds has two requirements: first, the player’s asking price must be satisfied, and second, the money must not be paid in installments.
Meeting such standards would clearly be difficult for a club in such desperate financial straits as Barcelona.
Barcelona is attempting to sign Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski due to financial restraints, but the club’s current predicament prevents them from meeting their declared ambition in the market.
Lewandowski has stated that he only wants to leave Bayern Munich for one club, Barcelona, but the Catalan club’s refusal to pay the Bayern Munich transfer fee has put the deal on hold.
Raphinha’s goal of joining a Champions League team could be shattered if Leeds believes they now hold all the cards following their victory.
Raphinha’s agent, Deco, is claimed to have been in discussions with his old club, Barcelona, for some months, and personal terms should not be a problem.
Leeds manager Jesse Marsch said last month that the Brazilian is still devoted to the club, citing his essential role in ensuring the team’s Premier League survival for another season as an example.
‘He’s completely devoted,’ Marsch added.
According to the author, his mood can be taken as a lack of discipline because it has been examined. It is, in my opinion, a total investment. ‘I haven’t thought about that area in a long time.’
Meanwhile, Rasmus Kristensen’s transfer to Leeds is expected to be completed this week. Following the news that Brenden Aaronson would be leaving RB Salzburg, the club is trying to sign him as their second summer acquisition.
