Chelsea and Newcastle United are eyeing up a move for Barcelona winger Raphinha
Spanish outlet Sport (h/t Daily Mail) has revealed that the La Liga leaders will have to sell some players in the summer to ease their financial issues. Xavi’s men think Raphinha could be one of the players sold.
With the Spanish giants struggling financially, it is time that the Blues take revenge and buy the player from them in the coming summer.
The Brazil international has been in great form this season, scoring nine goals and assisting nine in 37 appearances in all competitions. He has scored the winners in Barcelona’s last two 1-0 wins in the league against Valencia and Athletic Bilbao. So, he is not scoring goals, but helping the team gain points with them.
The 26-year-old had a very good World Cup with the national team too. So, he is currently in a fantastic vein of form and is in the peak years of his career as a forward.
That is where the possibility to get Raphinha comes into mind. The former Leeds player is very direct on the ball, can dribble past people at will and generally makes a good decision in the final third.
