Leeds: Fabrizio Romano provides key Raphinha transfer update

Leeds: Fabrizio Romano provides key Raphinha transfer update -Leeds United News

Barcelona are ‘well advanced’ in talks with Raphinha over a summer move from Leeds United, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Constant Raphinha rumours

Sadly for the Whites, endless reports are linking the Brazilian with a summer exit from Elland Road, as he seemingly weighs up his future.

Barcelona appear to be the current front-runners to snap up Raphinha at the end of the season, as new manager Xavi looks to add more quality to his squad.

Now, Romano has provided an update that further suggests the winger’s future may lie at the Camp Nou.

The Latest: Romano makes fresh claim

Taking to Twitter on Friday, the renowned journalist claimed that talks are ongoing and ‘advanced’, although nothing will be agreed quickly:

“Barcelona are in well advanced talks with Deco for Raphinha as summer target since one month, but the official negotiation with Leeds won’t start now – it will take some time.”

The Verdict: Turning the screw

Once a club of Barca’s history and stature show interest in a player, the end result is invariably a formality, which is clearly concerning for Leeds.

A recent claim made by transfer expert Dean Jones does at least suggest that Raphinha, and Kalvin Phillips for that matter, could still stay put but it is clear that the Catalan giants consider the former a primary target.

It is easy to see Raphinha slotting in seamlessly at Barca with some superb players around him and he may see it as a perfect opportunity to boost his chances of starting for Brazil at the World Cup later this year.
