Chelsea now back in for £55m attacker who Thomas Tuchel really wanted at Stamford Bridge last summer
Chelsea now back in for £55m attacker who Thomas Tuchel really wanted at Stamford Bridge last summer. According to Spanish news reports, Chelsea is reportedly interested in signing Raphinha again in the summer.
By signing the Brazilian after less than a year at the club, the Blues are one of the clubs that might potentially assist Barcelona with their financial problems, claims Sport.
When Chelsea made an effort to sign the footballer who was then playing for Leeds United, they became embroiled in one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer.
As the two parties reached an agreement on a transfer fee, everything appeared to be in place for the winger to move to Stamford Bridge.
Raphinha’s desire to represent Barcelona, though, put a stop to the agreement long enough for the Catalan team to acquire the necessary finances to sign him for £55 million.
He occasionally didn’t start for the Nou Camp team, so the transaction hasn’t been entirely successful.
Chelsea is considering Raphina
Their European adventures have also been a glaring failure. They were eliminated from the Champions League in the group stage, and they were defeated by Manchester United in the opening round of the Europa League.
There has been discussion about who might depart in order to bring in that money since they are once again in a position where they need to raise money to act in the transfer window.
Raphinha, according to Sport, may be one of the players whose services are no longer needed, with Chelsea once more expressing interest in a trade.
The Brazilian winger’s pairing with Raheem Sterling was something that previous boss Thomas Tuchel was really interested in at Stamford Bridge.
Graham Potter may not share the same enthusiasm for working with the winger, especially after the club strengthened that position by adding Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke during the winter transfer window.
