The Leeds United managed to maintain the category on the last day and will play the next season of the Premier League, good news for an interesting project and bad news for the FC Barcelona ahead of the next summer transfer market.
The permanence of the Ellan Road team will force FC Barcelona to negotiate for the signing of raphinha in the next summer transfer market. The termination clause, of 25 million euros, only existed if the club relegated this season to the second division. Given this scenario, they will have to start negotiations.
An almost impossible signing for Joan Laporta
FC Barcelona has been negotiating with the Brazilian winger for a long time, taking into account his impressive performance and natural fit within Xavi Hernández’s system. The Blaugrana team needs a first-class right winger to be able to replace Ousmane Dembélé’s loss, and everything seems to indicate that he will sign as a free agent with PSG in the coming weeks.
Leeds United do not have much intention of selling Raphinha, so it seems that the negotiations will be very complicated and the transfer is almost impossible at the moment. Everything will depend on what the Blaugrana team can offer, we know that they have many financial problems and that they first have to get rid of players before thinking about signings.
The situation of Ousmane Dembélé will be key. The Frenchman ends his contract in the summer and has two better offers than FC Barcelona at an economic level (PSG and Bayern Munich). In France they confirm that he will arrive in Paris to replace the role of Ángel Di María and at the request of Kylian Mbappé.
Negotiations will begin soon and Joan Laporta will have to get an AS up his sleeve to close this signing.
