In light of Ousmane Dembele's imminent departure, Raphinha will become one of Barcelona's main targets this transfer window. The Catalan club met up with Deco a few hours ago, the Brazilian's agent.
According to press, Barca made an initial approach for the winger, but received a negative response: the figure was short of Leeds' asking price. The English club want to respect their verbal agreement with Chelsea, who are willing to pay 60 million euros to get Raphinha. However, the 'blues' have not reached a deal with the player.
Therefore, negotiations are still ongoing and Barcelona are still in the race, although the first offer was insufficient. 'Los cules' will continue their pursuit until the end of the transfer market with the aim of getting Leeds to lower the price of the Brazilian.
