The race for Raphinha is down to two teams: Chelsea and FC Barcelona.
The Blues have reportedly agreed a fee with Leeds United, however, Barça is the winger’s preferred destination.
The Spanish club must now find an agreement with Leeds over a deal for the Brazilian and they have been set an ultimatum.
Leeds set Barça Raphinha ultimatum
Barcelona no closer to a full agreement with Leeds for Raphinha. Joan Laporta says “no deadline” to complete the deal but Leeds have asked Barca to present latest offer by Thursday. Leeds have already brought in Luis Sinisterra to replace Raphinha and want his future resolved.

Leeds United have told Barcelona to make their latest offer for Raphinha no later than Thursday, according to journalist Ben Jacobs.
The South Yorkshire club have already agreed a deal to sign his replacement in Luis Sinisterra and they now want his future resolved.
Barça now need to agree to a deal with Leeds who already have an agreement in place with Chelsea worth in excess of £55 million.
However, given the strong will of the player to move to Camp Nou, Barcelona are unlikely to need to go quite that high.
Leeds’ Thursday ultimatum may also mean very little with the player clearly totally determined to join Barça.
