Brazilian international Raphinha, is believed to be closing in on a move to Chelsea.

However, the agent of the Brazilian was spotted at Barcelona’s office.

According to reports, Raphinha had agreed personal terms with Barcelona in March and was keen on moving to the La Liga.

Barcelona is said to have a long-standing interest in Raphinha but have been unable to meet Leeds’ valuation of the player due to the club’s financial situation.

Chelsea have reportedly hijacked the deal from Arsenal who were leading race for Raphinha’s signature some time ago.

Raphinha’s agent is Deco who was a hero at Barcelona during his playing days.

The veteran midfielder was spotted at the club’s office, and may have been making one last push with Barcelona’s hierarchy on Wednesday.

Raphinha’s agent Deco, was spotted leaving Barcelona’s offices alongside the club’s director of football Mateu Alemany and Enric Masip, advisor to Barca president Joan Laporta.

Meanwhile, reports have it that Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong isn’t so keen on leaving the club despite the interest from Manchester United.
