Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez is considering a team revamp, and the signing of Raphinha is a step in that regard.

Barcelona is expected to pay Leeds €71 million (£60 million/$72 million) for the winger’s services.

Leeds and Barcelona have agreed to pay the final cost in instalments since the Liga club’s present financial predicament prevents them from paying the complete amount upfront.

The two clubs’ negotiations have intensified, and they are now attempting to iron out the small elements of the agreement.

Raphinha chose a move to Spain in order to fulfil his ambition of playing at Camp Nou. Deco, a former Barcelona player, is representing him and has devised a plan to make the transfer happen.
