The summer transfer window is full of surprises. Things can change anytime with the blink of your eyes. Last night, Chelsea joined the race with Arsenal FC to sign Raphinha from Leeds United. Now, they are really close to getting Raphinha.
Raphinha, the Brazil International, had a brilliant season with Leeds United in the previous season. He has been featured in 35 matches for Leeds United, where he scored 11 goals and got 3 assists. Moreover, Brazil’s manager Tite called him into the national team because of Raphinha’s recent performance. Raphinha shined in Brazil’s jersey as well. He scored 3 goals and got two assists in his seven appearances for Brazil.
Because of his tremendous performance both for the club and the country, many top European clubs have become interested in signing Raphinha. Arsenal and FC Barcelona were desperate to get him in this summer transfer window. But Arsenal were one step forward than Barcelona. They made a verbal bid for Raphinha, but Leeds United rejected it.
On the other hand, Chelsea joined the race with Arsenal last night. The Blues made a bid of around 65 million euros. This time, Leeds did not reject the offer. They reached an agreement with Chelsea FC. However, Chelsea will pay the full amount at once with no installments in this deal. Chelsea will announce the deal shortly. In addition, Chelsea are working on the Sterling deal. They are negotiating with Man City for Raheem Sterling.
Another big news broke on the internet yesterday. English giants Manchester United are close to hijacking the Feyenoord full-back, Tyrell Malacia. Tyrell Malacia was about to join Olympic Lyon. There was a verbal agreement between Feyenoord and Lyon for this player. Lyon offered Feyenoord around 13 million euros, which Feyenoord accepted verbally. But the scenario changed when Manchester United entered the stage.
Manchester United’s boss Erik Ten Hag is very interested in signing Tyrell Malacia. So, Man United made an immediate bid of around 15 million euros for him. Feyenoord are expected to accept the offer. The coming hours will be very decisive for the player and the clubs.
