Barcelona have reportedly come to an agreement with Leeds United attacker Raphinha over a five-year deal.
The 25-year-old’s future is currently the subject of much speculation, with a number of clubs believed to be keen to sign him during this summer’s transfer window.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich are all said to be admirers of the Brazil international, who has scored nine times and registered three assists in 28 appearances for the Whites during the 2021-22 campaign.
However, a recent report claimed that Raphinha had instructed his agent to negotiate with only Barcelona.
According to Sport, the attacker has already come to an agreement with Xavi‘s side over personal terms, with the Catalan outfit placing a five-year contract on the table.
The report claims that Barcelona are now attempting to come to an agreement with Leeds over a transfer fee, and versatile defender Oscar Mingueza could be involved in the deal.
The Whites have already allegedly turned down an offer of €35m (£29.1m) and are in a strong position to negotiate a higher fee, with Raphinha having a contract at Elland Road until June 2024.
