Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle circle for Raphinha with Barcelona set to sell


Barcelona are willing to offload ex-Leeds star Raphinha in the next transfer window to open up funds for their move for Lionel Messi.

Barcelona’s determination to bring Lionel Messi back to Camp Nou is going to be a major storyline during the next transfer window.

But their pursuit of the 2022 World Cup winner is complicated by the Blaugrana’s financial situation.

As a result, Barca’s squad is on standby and it is expected that key players may need to be offloaded.

According to reports, Raphinha will be sold by Barcelona in the off-season, with three Premier League clubs circling for his signature.

The Blaugrana will have to let Raphinha go to make room for Messi to return given the club’s financial problems, according to Fichajes. Messi is out of contract at Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this season.

Raphinha arrived from Leeds United last year and his stay could be short. AS claim Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle United are interested in the 26-year-old.
