Barcelona president Laporta: Leeds talks underway for Raphinha

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has announced talks are underway with Leeds United for Raphinha.

Raphinha is still waiting for Barca to make a bid despite having other offers.

"We have spoken to Leeds and I don't think they will be offended. We have communication. What happens is that there are other clubs who want Raphinha and they are making their proposals," Laporta said.

Another issue that is still pending for Barcelona is the renewal of Gavi. Everything points to the situation being resolved, though.

"Gavi is doing very well. We are very satisfied with how everything has developed with Ivan De la Pena and with the player", Laporta assured Blaugrana fans.
