Leeds United’s Raphinja (25) has been the focus of several European top sides. Barcelona’s director of football wants to fly to England this week and hold talks.
Bid is not enough: Mateu Alemany, director of football at FC Barcelona, wants to travel to England these weeks to negotiate a contract with 25-year-old Raphinha. The previous offer of 40 million euros is said to have not satisfied the English so far. FC Bayern Munich and FC Liverpool are also interested in the Brazilian, as the Catalan daily newspaper “SPORT” reports.
Impressive season: Raphinha has scored 11 goals and provided three assists in 35 league games, winning some games single-handedly. His achievements have not only aroused the interest of FC Barcelona, Liverpool FC and FC Bayern Munich are also associated with him, as “Leeds live” reports.
Leeds want €70m. Those in charge at Elland Road are apparently frustrated by Barcelona’s asking price and their refusal to respond to the price. The Barca offer of 40 million euros is too small for the English. Leeds are asking between €60m and €70m for the player.
