‘Surprising transfer news: Leeds can take 70 million to PSV thanks to Chelsea ‘

Surprising news from England: not Arsenal, but Chelsea seems to be Raphinhas new club. Leeds United has agreed to a bid of 70 to 75 million euros.
Chelsea and Leeds have reached agreement, reports Fabrizio Romano on Tuesday night. Now Raphinha has to get out with the London superpower. The turn is striking, as Arsenal seemed to have the best papers to take over the Brazilian forward (25). The Gunners and the equally interested FC Barcelona cannot offer as much as Chelsea.

According to The Athletic, there is no agreement between Chelsea and Leeds, but the switch from Raphinha to Stamford Bridge has come a step closer. New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly would play a decisive role in the turnaround.
With the huge amount Chelsea wants to pay for Raphinha, Leeds United can report to Eindhoven. The Premier League club will be talking to Cody Gakpo this week, the Algemeen Dagblad reported on Tuesday. The 23-year-old PSVer is seen by Leeds as Raphinhas ideal successor.
