So it seems Raphinha's priority above everything is to get to Barcelona.

If we really do want him, and are struggling for alternatives, why not use that to our advantage? Point out Barca aren't making him a priority right now, & how difficult it would be to move there from Chelsea. Offer to put some sort of release clause applicable to Barca only for x amount if they ever do make him their priority.

Don't usually like those sort of deals, but we get the player we wanted, he gets a big move without seeing a future move to Barca totally shut in his face, we can analyse the market and also analyse Jesus to see how he cuts it as a 9. If he doesn't we can move him wide and target that physical forward we all would like.

Just a thought.

We could also show how nicely we sold Cesc to Barcelona for cheap.

But seriously, surely a big club doesn't want to integrate a player only to lose him next season for cheap for example. Too much uncertainty for squad planning.

Raphinha wants UCL and we see two teams that are above us currently, so naturally he will choose them unless he is some ultimate Arsenal fan. He might be bigger Arsenal fan than Chelsea, but that's not really what matters the most to players and their careers.

He 26 years old if we put release clause it'll be no lower than 50m i believe barca won't activate that because they'll likely target younger wingers at similar price range . If nothing happen i can see him staying and Leeds and sign for barca next season but the signs look going to barca favor they looo capable of completing it now.

You normally wouldn't, but was just a thought. It would mean Barca still being interested next season, then finding say £50M to activate the clause anyway, so still caveats there.

Anyway, it looks like a long shot anyway. Lets just see what alternatives they come up with.

You kind of never leave Arsenal. How many comebacks do you make? At one point it will turn out to be a bad move. We all love the first Rocky but I'm not too sure about the last one.
