Leeds United winger Raphinha looks set to leave the club this summer with Barcelona keen to strike a deal for him.
According to a report by Mundo DeportivoBarcelona will be watching the final day of the Premier League closely as they want to check whether Leeds manage to prevent the drop or not.
Raphinha wants to leave the club and her first choice is Barcelona. However, he wants to do it the right way and avoid the club getting relegated.
At the same time, if the Whites manage to avoid the drop, Barcelona will struggle to secure his signature as the Yorkshire club will demand a hefty transfer fee for him.
Simply put, if Leeds survive, Barcelona will struggle to sign him. There could be a big transfer twist.
It’s a huge game for Leeds, and Jesse Marsch needs his best players to step in and deliver.
The Whites need a win on the final day to give themselves every chance of staying in place.
If Burnley lose to Newcastle United, Leeds could stay put.
This scenario could open up many possibilities in the transfer market, and Raphinha’s future could take a different turn. He might as well stay at Elland Road if there’s no big offer on the table or if Barcelona pull out.
If they are relegated, Leeds will have to sell Raphinha at a reasonable price. Although there is no relegation clause, it was verbally agreed so the club will probably allow him to leave.
Raphinha has scored 10 goals and provided three assists in the league this season, and Leeds will be counting on him to deliver once again.
