Raphinha, and the professional team that advises him, have always been very aware of the complexity involved in his possible arrival at the Camp Nou and of the circumstances that should and should occur. In fact, they are completely aligned with the sports management of Barcelona. There have never been tensions, or misunderstandings, or any kind of ultimatum.

Barcelona have communicated to the footballer that they are still interested in his services. And what Raphinha has been doing for months is blocking all offers and polls from the Premier League. Liverpool and Chelsea (where Deco played after leaving Barcelona) are the ones that have pushed the most, but there are also offers from Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United.

As SPORT has been reporting, there is a negotiating path between the two clubs. The latest transfer price for the Yorkshire club winger is €50m. Barça needs to reduce it as it is.
