Saudi Pro League planning €100m summer offer for Barcelona star Raphinha

Barcelona could receive a huge summer transfer offer from a Saudi Po League club for winger Raphinha.

The Brazilian international has been linked with a possible exit from Catalonia in the coming months as part of squad changes in 2024.

The 27-year-old is a key player for Barcelona, but the club could need at least one big money sale, to balance their delicate financial situation.

Alongside interest over a possible return to the Premier League, there will be an offer to head to the Middle East, as per the latest from Diario Sport.

The Saudi Pro League is expected to push for more huge signings in the coming months, on the back of a big spending 2023, and a €100m could be needed to prise Raphinha away from Barcelona.

The gap between Barcelona being persuaded to sell, and a Saudi club coming forward with a bid remains a significant barrier, but a huge offer could tempt them into considering a sale.

  1. I don’t think that the biggest barrier would be persuading Barca to sell, necessarily. The biggest barrier would likely be Raphina wanting to leave Barca to play in Saudi Arabia. Tripling his salary doesn’t make the quality of football in that league any better. My guess is (if he even wants to leave at all) that he’d rather continue play at a high level and would choose the PL over Saudi Arabia every time. Playing for the national team is also huge for a Brazilian footballer, and selection is very competitive. Playing in an inferior league would only hurt his chances there as well. I could be wrong, but I just don’t see him agreeing to a move like that at this stage of his career.
