Chelsea ready to enter negotiations for 26-year-old right now, Boehly’s already nearly signed him once
According to reports in Spain, Chelsea is ready to begin negotiations to sign Raphinha.
According to Sport through Sport Witness, both the Blues and rival Premier League club Newcastle United are ready to enter an advanced level.
Raphinha was close to joining Chelsea in 2022, so Chelsea supporters are well aware of the transfer rumors surrounding him.
Todd Boehly made an offer to Leeds in his first window as a manager to sign the Brazilian who everyone knew was on the move.
The proposal was first accepted, but the player appeared to be less sure about a future in West London.
Instead, he waited for a move to Barcelona, where he had a lot of success in his first season.
Raphinha is on his way to Chelsea.
His team is on the verge of being crowned Spanish champions, ahead of Real Madrid in La Liga, even though regular starts haven’t always been given to the 26-year-old.
He also struggled in Europe, with some of his performances raising concerns about his ability to succeed at the highest level.
This coincided with Barcelona being eliminated from both tournaments early, leaving a bitter taste in the mouth despite league glory.
The club’s need for money may force the Brazil international away as swiftly as he came in, with the Premier League being the most likely destination.

Before this season, Thomas Tuchel was a great supporter of the possible acquisition, looking to pair him on the wings with Raheem Sterling.
With the Englishman’s fluctuating form, it does not appear that this would have had the expected effect this season.
