However, the offer was declined by the Catalan giants, who are looking for a much higher fee to sell the winger.

It is stated that the Blaugrana want at least 80 million euros to offload the former Leeds United attacker.

As per the report, the will of all parties involved is to reach an agreement and Man Utd are expected to raise the offer to finally land Raphinha.

The Samba star proved to be a hit in England with the Elland Road outfit and would welcome a return to the Premier League.

Last season, in his debut campaign in Spain, Raphinha won the La Liga and Super Copa titles with Barcelona.

This term, so far, he has netted 10 goals and provided 13 assists in 27 starts (all competitions) under the management of Xavi.

The versatile playmaker mainly features on the right flank. He has the pace and the trickery to trouble any opposition.

Raphinha would be an upgrade to the likes Antony, Diallo, Sancho and Greenwood at Man Utd. Do you think United should raise the offer to sign him?
