A recent twist in the saga for the Brazilian winger has seen Leeds demand over-the-odds money if the Catalan giants are to secure Raphinha’s signature.
Leeds managed to survive relegation on the final day of the season with a 2-1 victory over Brentford, seeing Burnley back in the Championship after 6 years of Premier League football. Raphinha was pictured after the match walking the entire length of the pitch on his knees
Relegation would have seen Rafinha able to leave Leeds for €25m, however, following their survival Leeds are holding out for a figure closer to €55m.
Fabrizio Romano has stated Leeds have also demanded the transfer fee be paid in full, up-front - as opposed to structured instalments over a period of years. This has become a sticking point for Barcelona, who still remain with economic worries remaining in-line with LaLiga regulations.
Raphinha has enjoyed two successful campaigns in his time in the Premier League, registering 17 goals and 12 assists in 65 appearances in a team fighting for survival.
At just 25 Raphinha has a lot more to offer, and a bigger club like Barcelona could explode his career. However, the player himself will demand regular playing time ahead of the FIFA World Cup in December.
