Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement with Leeds United over the transfer of FC Barcelona-bound Raphinha.
The Blues are on the way of hijacking the Brazilian right winger from Barcelona to which the player has given a verbal agreement weeks ago.
Pending an agreement with Leeds’ officials, Barcelona saw Arsenal taking the advantage in the race as their offer was more interesting.
Now Chelsea came with an unmatchable offer which convinced Leeds United.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea and Leeds United have reached an agreement over a €70/75m fee for Raphinha’s transfer fee.
With Todd Boehly himself being involved in the negotiations, Chelsea are now looking forward to reaching an agreement on personal terms with the player.
Romano adds that the club have already sent an offer to Raphinha and his agent, Deco who also played for Chelsea in the past.
Boehly wants the deal to be completed as soon as possible in order to avoid any kind of surprise.
