Barcelona ready to give out Raphinha to Arsenal to fund Lionel Messi’s return.

In order to raise the necessary funds to complete a deal for the return of Lionel Messi, Barcelona is prepared to sell one of their wingers to Arsenal.

It was reported earlier this month that Barcelona have increased their efforts to re-sign Messi for the next summer season.

It has been claimed that the club is currently in discussions with La Liga over the possibility of generating more flexibility in their Financial Fair Play regulations. In point of fact, the league has filed a complaint against the club, alleging that they exceeded their FFP limit with three players during the 2021-22 season.

Despite this, there have been rumors that Messi’s contract negotiations with PSG have stalled, which has reportedly encouraged Barcelona to redouble their efforts to re-sign the seven-time winner of the Ballon d’Or.

However, in order to make room for the Argentinian‘s return, they will almost probably have to trade some of their players.

Raphinha is rumored to be one of the players who will be transferred out of the team.

AS reports that Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United have not abandoned their pursuit of Raphinha as the summer transfer window approaches.

It is believed that the board of directors of Barcelona would be willing to trade the 26-year-old player if they were to earn a large return on the player.

Raphinha was acquired by the La Liga club from Leeds United for a fee of £55 million last summer. Despite the fact that he did not immediately make an impact for the Catalan giants, he has impressed for the club as of late.

In point of fact, the Brazil international has played in all 42 games so far this season and has contributed to a total of nine goals and ten assists.
Despite this, it has been reported that Raphinha does not believe he is fully valued by Barcelona due to the fact that the club wants to use his sale to clear the way for Messi to come back.

The manager of Barcelona, Xavi, has not indicated any desire to break ways with the player who is now 26 years old.

When Xavi was asked about the Brazilian in February, he referred to him as “the future of Barcelona.”

According to Xavi, “he’s a player who’s criticized a lot, but he does a lot, and we value him a lot.”

We will never stop supporting Raphinha because we believe he is Barcelona’s best hope for the future.
