Leeds winger Raphinha pushing for Barcelona move

Leeds winger Ravenna is set to make a summer move to giants Barcelona.

Ravenna has been a key member of the Leeds side in the Premier League, but there is a feeling in the player that he would be in a better position to win trophies at another team.

Ravenha is represented by Deco, who has close ties to the Catalan club. Personal terms have already been said as the former Rennes star is keen to move to Camp Nou in the summer according to Mundo Deportivo.

The move would be necessary due to Barcelona’s reluctance to sign Adama Traore on a permanent deal with the player so far to cement his place in the first team since his move from Wolverhampton in January.

The interest in Barcelona has been that contracts with Andreas Christensen and Frank Kessie have already been closed while the Catalans have also linked Ansu Fati, Pedri and Ronald Araujo to new contracts, with an extension for Jaffe on the way.

Rafina is being seen as the perfect replacement for winger Ousmane Dembele, whose contract with the club expires next month and has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Negotiations with Leeds, however, have yet to take place. The report adds that Barcelona is waiting to see where the Whites will finish the season before starting talks about their goal.

As it stands, Leeds are just two points from the relegation zone with four games remaining and relegation means they get the player at a lower price.
