Raphinha’s Agent To Plot Strategy With Barcelona As Catalans Still In Hunt

Deco is in Barcelona to understand Barcelona’s plan for Arsenal target Raphinha and potentially discuss the outlines of the strategy to snare him away from Leeds United this summer.

Raphinha wants to leave Leeds this summer and Barcelona have continued to remain his preferred destination, despite serious Premier League interest.

Barcelona have had an agreement in place over a contract since March, but their financial problems have not allowed them to move more swiftly in the saga.

Clubs such as Arsenal have stolen a march on them in the chase and the Gunners have already failed with a bid.

But according to Catalan daily SportDeco, his agent, continues to give Barcelona preference and he is in the Catalan city for more talks with the club.

Barcelona have told the player’s representative that they are still interested in signing the Brazil winger this summer.

The Catalan giants are expected to make a final decision on whether to pursue Raphinha by the end of this month.

Deco is in Barcelona to understand the club’s plans for the player and how they want to proceed if they do want to sign him.

If a positive decision is made, the former midfielder is planning to hold talks with Barcelona to discuss the potential strategy they would take in negotiations with Leeds.

The Whites accept that the player could leave this summer but are ready to hold out for a premium fee before agreeing to sell him.
