The Brazilian's move is almost complete and should be announced soon
Raphinha is to become the third Barcelona signing of the summer in the coming hours. The Blaugrana and Leeds have reached a deal for 55 million euros plus 10 million in variables, and the Brazilian player will head to Catalonia shortly.
He has permission from his club to come to Spain and he will have his medical and sign his contract for the next five seasons.
They’ve had a deal practically since Friday but discussions in the last few hours have focused on the variables and on what delay Barcelona might be granted in paying, as they wait to activate their second financial lever.
The idea is that Raphinha lands on Wednesday and is available for the club’s tour of the USA.
