Al Hilal, in need of a replacement for the injured Neymar Junior, is reportedly interested in the Brazilian star, Raphinha.
Barcelona is facing ongoing financial challenges. They might need to make a major sale in 2024. This is similar to the departure of Ousmane Dembele to Paris Saint-Germain during the summer.
Raphinha faced reduced playing time and potential financial constraints at Barcelona. He might be among the prime candidates for departure. The Brazilian’s market value could make him a viable option to be sold to address financial concerns.
Raphinha has attracted interest from both Tottenham Hotspur and Al Hilal. Tottenham’s interest has been reported in recent weeks, and Al Hilal is now considering him as a potential replacement for Neymar Junior, who suffered a season-ending injury last month.
Barcelona has reportedly set an asking price of €70 million for Raphinha. Al Hilal is considered a potential suitor, and while they may have the financial capacity to meet the valuation, the decision ultimately rests on whether the 26-year-old Brazilian would be willing to leave Europe, particularly Catalonia, for Saudi Arabia.
