Barcelona might be willing to let go of some of their high-profile players like Raphinha, to secure funds for their future signings.
Barcelona’s Brazilian winger Raphinha, who arrived two summers ago from Leeds United as the club’s most expensive signing, is facing scrutiny for his lack of consistent playing time.
Despite Barcelona’s overall struggles this season, Raphinha has struggled to secure a regular spot on the right wing, with Xavi Hernandez often favoring other players like Ousmane Dembele.
Raphinha faced a setback when Dembele returned from injury and later found himself behind players like Lamine Yamal and Joao Cancelo in the pecking order.
According to Sport, Sporting Director Deco, who used to represent Raphinha, is confident that the player can recover his form and contribute significantly in the second half of the season. However, if Raphinha continues to struggle for a starting spot, Barcelona may consider offers for him next summer.
Barcelona is reportedly confident that they can secure a substantial transfer fee for Brazilian winger Raphinha.
Last summer, Newcastle United and clubs in Saudi Arabia expressed interest in the player. Additionally, Raphinha remains on Chelsea’s shortlist if they decide to pursue a wide player in the future.
However, if Raphinha continues to struggle for a starting position for the remainder of this season and the next, Barcelona may be compelled to sell. The club views this as a pragmatic decision, considering the financial aspects, especially given emerging talents like Lamine Yamal and underutilized players like Ferran Torres in the squad.
