Martin Hardy of The Times is reporting that despite the excessive interest, Leeds United winger Raphinha is favouring a move to Barcelona since personal terms are already agreed between the two.

However, striking a deal for Barcelona, in particular, is going to be extremely difficult given that the Premier League side is demanding more than €58 million for their winger.

In any way, Leeds, who narrowly avoided relegation, are bracing themselves for offers coming from the fellow Premier League sides Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. The aforementioned outlet says the latter have already made contact with the officials from Leeds.

While no official offer has been made to date either by Arsenal, Tottenham or Barcelona, Leeds United are well and truly aware of the interest their winger has generated.

So far, Barcelona have agreed personal, but no agreement has been reached with Leeds on the transfer fee. Arsenal, on the other hand, are in direct contact with the team as their interest has been persistent since March.

At Barcelona, the situation is entirely different. For them to invest a heavy amount in the market, they must sanction Frenkie de Jong’s sale to Manchester United. The two teams, however, still haven’t managed to establish a middle ground.

The Catalans are also waiting to officially sell 49% of Barcelona Licensing and Merchandising along with 25% of their TV rights after the ‘economic levers’ were approved last week in an assembly.

If that is done, Barcelona will have enough remuneration to sanction at least Raphinha’s transfer.

For now, Arsenal remain in the driving seat as the .er does not want to wait for Barcelona to sort out their economic issues. “They have disappeared,” is something that those sitting in the Leeds United’s offices feel about Barcelona.

The Blaugrana were hoping to get this deal done for as low as €25 million in the summer, but with Leeds managing to stay in the Premier League, they have seemingly decided to stop the negotiations altogether.

As of today, Barcelona have not come up with a new offer, hence, both Leeds United and Raphinha have decided to explore other avenues. So if everything goes as planned, t. are high chances that the winger will, in fact, sign for Arsenal in the summer.
