Both Chelsea and Leeds have reached full agreement for Brazilian winger Raphinha with the official bid between £60m to 65m accepted by both parties.

“Chelsea and Leeds have reached full agreement for Raphinha! Official bid accepted around £60/65m [add ons included]. Main part of amount to be paid immediately. It’s done between clubs. Talks now ongoing on player side on personal terms and contract. Boehly, on it.” Said Fabrizio Romano

The news is a big blow for Arsenal who had placed an improved offer offer of £50 million plus addons after their first bid of £35 million was turned down by the club.

La Liga giants Barcelona who were initially on the lead to sign the Brazilian had their chance blown away after their offer could not match that of Thomas Tuchel side who are looking to strengthen the squad ahead of pre-season.

“More on Raphinha. Arsenal had a meeting with Leeds and made a new verbal bid in the last hours, turned down by LUFC. Barcelona also called Leeds again but no chance to match Chelsea bid. Chelsea are now working to get the agreement done also on personal terms.” Said Fabrizio Romano
