Raphinha’s future at Barcelona uncertain

According to Catalan outlet Sport, the future of Barcelona winger Raphinha is rather unclear at this point, despite his excellent performances in recent matches.

North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are believed to be maintaining a long-standing interest in the Brazil international, and there has apparently been an offer for his services of €80 million from Saudi Arabia. Raphinha hasn’t shown any desire to leave Barcelona at the end of this season for now, but the club’s financial worries might prompt them to put him up for sale nonetheless.

Prior to his move from Leeds United to Barcelona in 2022 for just under €60 million, Raphinha was reportedly of interest to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City as well. In case Mohamed Salah leaves Anfield at the end of the season, the possibility of the Merseysiders reigniting their interest in the 27-year-old shouldn’t be ruled out either.

Having struggled with muscle issues this term, Raphinha has made a total of 28 appearances across all competitions for Barcelona, scoring five goals and producing twice as many assists.
