Barcelona make final attempt for Chelsea target Raphinha

Barcelona are making a last ditch move for Leeds United winger Raphinha.

The Telegraph says personal terms worth £115,000-a-week and a five-year contract are “broadly" agreed between Chelsea and Raphinha now.

Leeds are also happy with a fee in the region of £55million yet one last play by Barcelona could disrupt the deal.

Raphinha's agent, former Chelsea and Barcelona midfielder Deco, is holding talks with the Spanish club as they await a decision from Ousmane Dembele on his contract and a £160m sale of a percentage of their TV rights before being able to make a bid.

However, Leeds will not wait forever for Barcelona to stump up the cash.
