The Brazilian wide man is a target for the Catalan giants if wing wizard Dembele goes

Leeds United have told Barcelona that they will not accept the 35m euro bid for Raphinha that the Catalans have put in and referred them to his 75 million euro release clause.

The English side’s move has not stopped Barcelona from believing they can get him at a good price, though.

Raphinha, who has a contract until 2024, is the start of the Yorkshire whites and also linked with Liverpool and Bayern.

SPORT have learned the 25 year old wants come to Barca and the club have asked Deco, who works for them but is also Raphinha’s agent, to do everything possible to bring him to Camp Nou.

The presence of a coach like Xavi and the progression of a young team are factors that the winger likes a lot.

Barcelona will reactivate contact with Leeds. If Dembele leaves they want Raphiha as a replacement and can get him for 25m if Leeds go down.
