Raphinha, a winger for Leeds United, has been listed as one of Barcelona's main picks for the summer transfer window.
The 25-year-old is now on international duty with the Brazilian national team, awaiting word on his future.
Raphael Belolli, the player's father, opened up about his son's position in quotes published byMundo Deportivo
. Barcelona's desire is well-known, butLeeds United
, who just survived relegation on the last day of thePremier League
season, are holding their cards close to their chests.
“There are possibilities but these possibilities involve three parties,” Belolli said. “The interested club, the current club and the player. He is calm about having a contract and, as everyone knows, the possibilities are not just down to him. What is already known is what is in the news, nothing more.”
Raphinha is estimated to cost around €55 million. Given Barcelona's current circumstances, that is a significant transfer price, and it is known that the deal is contingent on Ousmane Dembele's future.
The transaction will be canceled if the Frenchman signs a contract renewal at Camp Nou. However, if Dembele goes on a free transfer at the conclusion of the season,Barcelona
will make the deal easier.
Raphinha has 11 goals and three assists in 36 games across all competitions this season. He has seven caps and three goals for the Brazilian national team.
