Dmtloaded understood the signing of the 25-years-old player is to replace Dembele at the club next season
Manager Xavi, director Mateu Alemany, and advisor Jordi Cruyff are all in agreement over his suitability for the team.
The Brazilian international has been a huge success at Leeds United since arriving from Rennes in 2020.
The winger played a key role in ensuring that Jesse Marsch’s side did not get relegated from the Premier League this season, thanks to the final day win over Brentford
If Leeds United had been relegated, Raphinha would have been available for a sum of €25 million in the summer.
However, now that the Whites have stayed up, they are likely to demand more for their star player, especially given his recent performances
The report states that the Yorkshire-based outfit could ask for a sum of around €40 million at least for Raphinha
Although there is the possibility of Barça including a player in the deal to lower the transfer fee.
As for personal terms, it is claimed that an agreement is already in place thanks to the close ties between Barcelona and Raphinha’s agent, Deco.
Barcelona is planning to step up their pursuit of the former Sporting CP winger, with Alemany and Cruyff set to initiate fresh discussions to try and wrap up the deal
Despite the potential increase in his price, the Blaugrana remain confident of landing Raphinha in the summer transfer window
Soon, if things go as planned, he could be plying his trade for Barcelona.
