Boost for Chelsea: Leeds set Barcelona ultimatum for Raphinha offer

The race for Raphinha is down to two teams: Chelsea and FC Barcelona.

The Blues have reportedly agreed a fee with Leeds United, however, Barça is the winger’s preferred destination.

The Spanish club must now find an agreement with Leeds over a deal for the Brazilian and they have been set an ultimatum.

Leeds United have told Barcelona to make their latest offer for Raphinha no later than Thursday, according to journalist Ben Jacobs.

The South Yorkshire club have already agreed a deal to sign his replacement in Luis Sinisterra and they now want his future resolved.

Barça now need to agree to a deal with Leeds who already have an agreement in place with Chelsea worth in excess of £55 million.

However, given the strong will of the player to move to Camp Nou, Barcelona are unlikely to need to go quite that high.

Leeds’ Thursday ultimatum may also mean very little with the player clearly totally determined to join Barça.
