Here Is Why Barcelona Wants To Sell Raphinha This Summer.
Football fans around the world have been surprised by recent news from Spain, which implies that Barcelona is planning to sell Raphinha.
It appears that Raphinha and Barcelona’s recently established connection is not working well because sources claim that the Brazilian is currently for sale. Many were greatly surprised by this given the great effort the Spanish powerhouses had made to get the former Leeds United and Brazilian winger.
At the start of the 2022–2023 season, Barcelona had spent more than 55 million pounds on Raphinha during the transfer window, but the player seemed to have fallen short of expectations.
Because Raphinha has not been impressive this season and has been demoted to begin off the bench by French star Dembele, who also plays the same position as the Brazilian, reports have suggested that Barcelona will consider bids for the player.
The winger has only scored 5 goals for Barcelona in the 2022/2023 season and has only managed 2 assists in the same season as well. This is abysmal compared to the 13 goals and 7 assists Demebele alone has made in the 2022/2023 season.
Due to the new contract given to Dembele, getting game time at Barca had been a major issue when the deal was being finalized. It appears that these concerns were justified as the Spanish giants are currently looking for an alternative.
