The 25-year-old looks poised to leave Leeds amid a fierce battle for his services, with Chelsea widely reported to have had a bid accepted, while Arsenal have also been attributed with an interest.

Barcelona have long been seen as the favourites, however, though there have been questions as to whether the club could afford the winger due their financial problems – though they were boosted by a TV agreement this week.

Laporta has now confirmed that Raphinha does indeed want to move to Barcelona. “We’ve spoken to Leeds, I don’t think they will be offended. We have communication and we have spoken personally,” he told reporters on Saturday.

“What happens is that there are other clubs that want Raphinha and are making their proposals. He wants to come.”
