Raphinha wants Barcelona stay despite Premier League links

Raphinha wants to remain at Barcelona this summer despite continued speculation surrounding a potential return to the Premier League.

Barcelona are willing to listen to offers for the winger at the end of the campaign to combat financial issues, with the Spanish side around €200m over the spending cap imposed on the club by La Liga.

The emergence of Lamine Yamal has impacted Raphinha’s run of regular games and his high value has made the Brazilian an option to leave in the summer.

 

Arsenal and Chelsea both made approaches to sign the 27-year-old from Leeds United in 2022, before his £55m move from Elland Road to Barcelona. Several of the Premier League’s top sides have also been credited with interest, including Manchester United, Spurs and Liverpool.

However, despite Barcelona’s willingness to invite bids, Sport are reporting that Raphinha has no intention of leaving Catalonia.

The Brazil international is hoping an improved run of recent form can regain a regular place in the side and will be keen to see who is appointed as the club’s next head coach before making a decision on his future. Xavi is set to step down at the Camp Nou at the end of the current campaign.

 

There is also interest in Raphinha from the Saudi Pro League with Al-Hilal reportedly keen to unite him with compatriot Neymar in the Middle East. An offer in the region of €100m (£85m) has been speculated.
