It has been reported that Raphinha’s decisive second-half penalty in Brentford, which maintained Leeds United in the Premier League, seems to have complicated his move to Barcelona.
Catalan clubs are said to be enthusiastic about bringing Brazilians to the club, and there are reports suggesting that a deal has been reached between player agents Deco and Barcelona. However, according to Sports, the contract was easy to fulfill due to the demotion clause in Raphinha’s contract.
Therefore, the Brazilian’s impressive late performance seems to have complicated what many believe is his desirable move.
About Barcelona’s Approval Of Xavi Hernandez
According to a Spanish publication, upon the order from manager Xavi Hernandez, Barcelona was ready and ready to pay £21m to take Raphinha to the club.
It is being reported that the price is now doubling to £40 million as Leeds is safe in the Premier League for another year.
Barcelona’s economic predicament is well documented, and its astronomical wage costs and debt mean that you have to spend £1 million for every £4 million saved.
This leaves the club paralyzed in the market unless the player is eliminated, which means that £20m added to Raphinha’s value could prove a stumbling block.
On Friday, Mundo Deportivo reported that Raphinha’s move to Barcelona depends on the future of Ousmane Dembele, who will be able to leave the club with a free transfer next month, but the club has given him a new deal and is encouraging him to sign.
Robert Lewandowski is said to remain a target for the club as both the club’s hierarchy and his supporters want at least one superstar to arrive this summer.
Bernardo Silva was also promoted. But, as sports reports suggest, the club’s ambitions and the reality of their financial situation do not seem to be in perfect agreement this summer.
