Chelsea and Leeds have reached full agreement for Raphinha! Official bid accepted around £60/65m [add ons included]. Main part of amount to be paid immediately. It’s done between clubs
Talks now ongoing on player side on personal terms and contract. Boehly, on it.
More on Raphinha. Arsenal had a meeting with Leeds and made a new verbal bid in the last hours, turned down by LUFC. Barcelona also called Leeds again but no chance to match Chelsea bid.
Chelsea are now working to get the agreement done also on personal terms.
Chelsea are now going into talks with Raphinha side and agent Deco (yes, former Chelsea midfielder!) - on the personal terms. It’s key step before ‘here we go’, as Arsenal and Barça were in talks with Leeds also today morning
Deal fully agreed between clubs with Leeds.
Chelsea have already sent an official proposal to Raphinha and his agent Deco to discuss personal terms as Boehly wants to be fast to avoid problems. Work in progress.
Chelsea will also send new bid to Manchester City for Raheem Sterling - Tuchel wants two wingers.
