Just in: Barcelona have agreed on a €60 million deal with Leeds United for Raphinha
Barcelona have agreed on a deal, in principle, with Leeds United to sign Raphinha for €60 million, reports Gerard Romero. The journalist claims that Barcelona’s sporting director Mateu Alemany flew to Leeds today to close the transfer.
The €60 millon still falls quite a bit short of Chelsea’s €70-75 million bid, but it seems Raphinha’s desire to move to Barcelona has helped the Lilywhites close the deal. He stopped any move to Chelsea and wanted to pursue his dream of playing for Barça.
His agent, Deco, was also working on pushing the move through even though Chelsea had a deal with Leeds.
Barcelona will not be able to send €60 million directly, and will pay it in three installments.
Raphinha will earn nearly €6 million net per year at Barcelona, which is also what Romero claims the Blaugrana management offered to Dembele in the last week along with €1.5 million in add-ons.
