Chelsea, Leeds United Agree Raphinha Transfer Deal


Chelsea and Leeds United have reached a full agreement over a move for Raphinha this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Brazilian has been linked with a move away from the Yorkshire club, with plenty of clubs interested.

But it appears that the Blues are the first team to make a breakthrough in talks with Leeds, with Arsenal the only other side to have tabled a bid so far. The Gunners have been rejected on each occasion though, falling short of the valuation.

The 25-year-old has impressed since moving to England from Stade Rennais back in 2020. Last season he scored 11 and assisted three in the Premier League to help his side retain their top-flight status.

According to Fabrizio, a move worth £60-to-£65million has been agreed, with add-ons included. The next stage includes talks with the player and his representatives, which includes former midfielder Deco.
