EXCLUSIVE: Barcelona set Raphinha asking price

Barcelona remain keen on selling Brazilian winger Raphinha and have lowered their asking price for the former Leeds star, FootballTransfers has been told.

In January 2023, the Blaugrana reportedly put a €100m price tag on his head, but we can reveal the LaLiga giants have revised their asking price and are instead demanding €70m for Raphinha. Barcelona would prefer to strike a deal in the January window, though they realise that a summer move is far more likely.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabian clubs have expressed interest in Bruno Fernandes, but there are no ongoing talks, and Fernandes remains content at Old Trafford.
