This Saturday night, yet more development in the Raphinha transfer drama came to light. Mundo Deportivo claims that the Brazilian has specifically rejected Saudi Arabia as a potential future home.

Raphinha is focused on Barcelona, but he also keeps an eye on a possible return to the Premier League, scoffing at the idea of moving to the Middle East. Due to Xavi Hernández’s ambitions for Barcelona’s upcoming season, Raphinha may still be let go.

Raphinha appears happy with his current circumstances; according to Mundo Deportivo, he would want to remain at Barcelona, where he is at ease both on and off the field. But his future is uncertain given the club’s financial struggles.

It appears that Raphinha would need to be made an offer he couldn’t turn down in order to rejoin the Premier League.

Notably, he might be lured back to England, where he developed his skills at Leeds United, by teams like Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham, who have previously expressed interest in him. The winger is valued at €50 million by Transfermarkt. He signed a contract with Barcelona in 2022 for €58 million, and his deal runs until 2027.
