Raphinha is moving away from becoming a Barcelona player, according to esport3.
Leeds United are desperate to keep hold of the winger and are standing firm over their valuation.
The South Yorkshire club are demanding €70 million for the Brazilian.
⚪️ Raphinha for Leeds in the Premier League last season:
⚽️ Goals – 11
🅰️ Assists – 3
💪 Having directly contributed to 33.3% of their league goals, no wonder Leeds are keen on keeping the Brazilian at Elland Road! pic.twitter.com/4jQW8Ev31s

Leeds understand that Raphinha wants to leave, however, they want as much money as possible from the operation.
The power in the negotiation is with Leeds who, by escaping relegation, avoided losing him for just €25 million due to a clause in his contract.
Given Barça’s pretty desperate financial situation, they are unable to match Leeds’ asking price.
Therefore, a move for Raphinha to Camp Nou is starting to look unlikely, unless they can make some major sales.
Lewandowski only wants Barça
Fabrizio Romano has stated on his YouTube channel that Robert Lewandowski has told Barcelona that he only wants to sign for them.
The striker does NOT want to continue with Bayern Munich and he wants to try something new.
Barcelona and his agent have been working on a deal since March for the Pole to join the Spanish club.
Lewandowski has a verbal agreement over a three-year contract and now Barça must agree a fee with Bayern.
Bayern still does not want to sell Lewandowski – but internal discussions could begin with an offer of over 40 Mio https://t.co/af478UhH3U
