A recent report from Spanish publication Todo Fichajes alleges that Manchester United have supposedly been in full negotiations over signing Barcelona winger Raphinha.

According to the report, everything seems set for the Brazilian to move to Old Trafford this summer.

An agreement in principle of a €50million deal has allegedly been reached between the United and the Catalan giants.

Barcelona will most likely be making lots of sales this summer to generate revenue as they seek to recover from an economic mess, and the Brazilian winger may be a viable sale option.

Raphinha has always been an exciting prospect, although he is yet to hit the heights of potential he occasionally shows.

The left-footed Brazil international has returned 37 goal contributions in 78 matches for Barça, which translates to almost a goal or assist every other game.

These stats perhaps do him justice, and it goes without say that he has done well enough to deserve much more credit.

The emergence of teenage sensation Lamine Yamal has indeed clouded the winger’s future at Barça and this, coupled with how desperately Barça needs to make sales, Raphinha could be well on his way out of the Nou Camp.

Rather than lose their top tier young talents like Gavi or Pedri, or their guaranteed starters like Ronald Araujo and Frenkie de Jong, Barcelona will be looking to offload secondary parts of their squad like the Brazilian.

Raphinha rose to prominence during a dazzling two-year spell with Leeds and more than proved he’s capable of making a huge impact in the Premier League.

These reports if true make sense and could be beneficial for both side: Barça get to make some well-need revenue and United get a right-winger, whom they desperately need.

That position for United has been in disarray for the longest time, especially after the banishment of Mason Greenwood, who was favourite to make that position his own for the next decade.

His supposed replacement Antony has rendered his astonishing £81.3m price tag a daylight robbery on account of how underwhelming he has been.
