FC Barcelona forward Raphina could be heading back to the Premier League after only leaving Leeds United last summer. It is believed that Barcelona are looking for money and that the Brazilian could represent a large transfer sum as he has caught the interest of several clubs all over Europe.
Despite having a contract until the summer of 2027, Raphina has been put on a list with players that could leave Barcelona this summer. It is well-known that Barça president Joan Laporta wants to bring back Lionel Messi next season. But to sign the Argentinian, Barcelona will need to cut their expenses and create a massive budget.
According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, several clubs have already contacted Barcelona to have a talk about the availability of a couple of players, including Raphina. One of the clubs that has been put forward is Newcastle United. The Magpies are looking to grab a top four finish in the Premier League, meaning qualification for the Champions League next season.
This could make Newcastle an interesting destination for Raphina. The Magpies already shown interest in the Brazilian international while he was still at Leeds and would love to sign him for a reduced fee this summer. This season, the Brazil international has scored 9 goals and 9 assists in 41 appearances.
