​Leeds issue deadline to Barcelona over Raphinha deal

Leeds United have sent Barcelona an ultimatum regarding winger Raphinha.

The Premier League club are unhappy with the way that the Catalan giants are attempting to secure the attacker.

Raphinha prefers to go to Barca, despite an offer from Chelsea that Leeds have accepted.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Elland Road club have told their Spanish counterparts that they must finalise a transfer in the coming days.

Leeds want a bid in for Raphinha before the end of Thursday, otherwise they will mark him as unavailable for purchase this summer.

Barcelona manager Xavi is very keen to add a quality winger to the squad, even if they retain Frenchman Ousmane Dembele.
