Total agreement between FC Barcelona and Leeds for Raphinha

What’s next after this ad

Here we are. After formalizing the arrivals of Franck Kessié and Andreas Christensen, FC Barcelona is about to formalize its third winter recruit. And this time, the Barcelona leaders will put their hands in their pockets. If the player seemed promised to Arsenal then to Chelsea, Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany managed to toast all these beautiful people.

As explained Mundo Deportivo, it is done. FC Barcelona have agreed to transfer the Brazilian winger, which will cost 58 million euros, plus 7 million euros in bonuses. The principal concerned had already reached an agreement with the Catalan club on the basis of a five-year contract for several weeks. His desire to play at the Camp Nou had a major role in the outcome of this case, since other clubs offered more money to Leeds, but he pushed for his leaders to accept the Catalan offer.

Deco also had a role to play

His agent, Deco, a former Barça player, is also one of the reasons for this agreement, since he is close to Joan Laporta and he too pushed with the Leeds staff. The player will also receive a lower salary than he could have received by signing with an English cador, according to the Spanish publication. He is expected to be available for Barca’s US tour, which will travel across the Atlantic this Saturday.

Barça was able to complete this rather expensive file thanks to the sale of certain assets, such as these 10% of the TV rights sold to Sixth Street, while other similar cash inflows are expected in the coming days in the Camp offices No. Money was therefore not necessarily a problem in these negotiations even if we imagine that Joan Laporta did not want to splurge. With Raphinha and probably Ousmane Dembélé, Barça’s right side is pretty well covered…
