Newcastle slap in bid for Leeds star Raphinha

Newcastle United have tabled a bid for Leeds United star Raphinha.

Chelsea looked to have leaped to the front of the queue, topping Arsenal's initial offer. However the Brazilian doesn't want to head to west London - and has told agent Deco to stop negotiating.

The player remains determined to seal a dream switch to Barcelona.

However, with Barca hesitating, El Chiringuito's Gerard Romero reports the Magpies submitted a bid for the Brazilian on Friday morning.

Barca are expected to make a final decision this week, with Ousmane Dembele now considering signing a new deal.
