The Leeds winger scored a penalty as his team managed to survive and relegate Burnley
Barcelona had a lot at stake, economically speaking, on Sunday in the Premier League. If Leeds had been relegated, Raphinha’s release clause would have been 25 million euros. Instead Burnley went down and it’s now harder to sign the Brazilian.
Barcelona would have to pay over 45 million euros if they want him now. Xavi had given the green light to the deal. SPORT revealed that the player had agreed to come too, with negotiations easy with Deco as his agent.
The problem is that Leeds stayed up with a stoppage time winner, sinking Burnley instead. The Brazilian had opened the scoring from the penalty spot, helping his own transfer value go up and potentially foiling his own dream.
