Raphinha went to Spain to do his medical on Wednesday after Barcelona said that an agreement had been reached to sign him for a fee of €67million (£56.57m).

Dembele hit free agency last month when his deal reached its end, but Laporta revealed that the Frenchman will stay at the club under the reign of Xavi.

Before the Catalan’s friendly clash against Olot, Laporta told reporters:

"This week we will present Dembele and Raphinha."

Laporta added:

"We are doing everything we can, it is not easy, but we are working very well. I congratulate how the football department is working, with Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff to the front."

He added:

"We have come to Olot to hold a meeting of the board of directors. There will be time to talk about that."

Laporta did not comment on a move for Robert Lewandowski, the Bayern Munich star. Francisco Trincao departed the Blaugrana on Wednesday to make a move to Sporting CP on a loan deal and his contract includes an option to make his move permanent.
