Barcelona ‘seal Raphinha deal’ despite financial turmoil as star snubs Chelsea

Barcelona are set to complete the signing of Raphinha after sealing a £57million (€67m) deal with Leeds United.

Raphinha opted to wait for a dream move to Camp Nou, snubbing Chelsea interest after the Blues shook hands on a fee with the Elland Road club earlier this summer.

After Chelsea hijacked initial Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur interest in the 25-year-old winger, Barcelona swooped in to secure his services.

And according to Fabrizio Romano, a full agreement with Leeds has now been reached to seal Xavi Hernandez’s latest signing.
