Transfer: Leeds accept Barcelona's €67 million offer for Raphinha, beating off Chelsea.


 Barcelona made a €67 million offer for Raphinha, which Leeds United accepted.


The Elland Road club and Premier League foe Chelsea earlier reached a £55 million agreement.


Raphinha, on the other hand, was only interested in joining Barca.


After receiving an offer from the LaLiga powerhouses, Leeds decided to part with the Brazil winger.

Transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano verified to this.


"Raphinha to Barcelona, here we go!" Romano tweeted. After today's proposal was accepted, a complete deal was achieved with Leeds: a fixed sum of €58 million plus add-ons totaling a €67 million package.


"Raphinha only wanted Barça since February and is scheduled to sign until June 2027, time for documentation and contracts," the statement reads.
