Barcelona Have Finally Matched Chelsea Offer For Raphinha. Raphinha, a winger for Leeds United, is widely said to desire a transfer to Barcelona, but Chelsea still has a strong chance of landing the Brazilian.
Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports recently reported that Barcelona had allegedly finally matched the Blues’ offer for Raphinha.
The 25-year-old South American is reportedly more interested in moving to Barcelona, but Jacobs also claimed that he would be open to the thought of playing for Thomas Tuchel.
Manager Jesse Marsch acknowledged earlier this week that he anticipates the simmering controversy to be resolved quickly in an interview with Leeds Live.
Barcelona Have Finally Matched Chelsea Offer For Raphinha. The American remarked, “Raphinha returned to training today, good attitude.”
Given that things could change quickly in Australia, I wouldn’t commit to his presence there.
The winger’s decision will be eagerly anticipated by fans, especially Chelsea supporters, as negotiations are about to come to a dramatic finish.
The Serie A champions AC Milan are interested in Hakim Ziyech, who the Londoners appear close to losing. As a result, Tuchel and the club’s new owner Todd Boehly will likely prioritize bringing in some new wide-attacking talent.
