Chelsea Hijacks Arsenal & Barca's Deal For World Class Star With A £65m Offer

According to reports by Top Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, premier league outfits Chelsea Football Club have reached an agreement with Leeds United for Brazilian winger Raphinha. The deal is in place between the two English giants with talks ongoing on the player's side for personal terms.

According to the reports, Leeds have accepted the Blues official bid of £65m total fee plus add ons and the main part of the fee will be paid in one solution immediately. The key factor of the communication is that there will be no so many installments in the deal.

Chelsea's London rivals Arsenal Football Club reportedly had a verbal bid turned down today for Raphinha, which was lower than Chelsea's offer, while Barcelona called Leeds in the last hours but could not match Thomas Tuchel's side offer for the 25 year old star.

Talks are now ongoing between Chelsea and the player's agents on personal terms to reach an agreement on a possible and suitable contract for both parties.

Do you think Raphinha's addition to the Blues squad could help them challenge for any silverware next season?
