Barcelona president Joan Laporta believes that Raphinha wants a move to the Nou Camp despite offers from other clubs.

It remains to be seen if the La Liga giants, who have suffered well-documented financial issues, can match the offer from Chelsea. Barcelona have reportedly agreed personal terms with Raphinha and it seems that a move will only materialise if the club can meet the valuation set by Leeds.

“I don’t think it will offend them [saying this] because we have spoken personally and we are in communication, but there are also other clubs that want Raphinha and have made their offers," said Laporta.

“We know that the player would like to come to Barcelona.”
