Can we go for the even more rare triple-gazump

There’s always a bigger fish.


FinalBosse

It’d be hilarious but it’s not going to happen. Barca are Serie A level poor.


Designer_Surprise263

I read that as Barça are now Lever Pool. And had a chuckle, but I misread into something gold. Lol

Imagine after all this he just ends up staying at Leeds

There’s Something About ~~Mary~~ Raphinha


fuckyouidontneedone

I hope so


Drisc011

Very possible, he only wants to go to barca and they can't afford him


lFriendlyFire

Not sure he’d only go to barca. He had interviews in which he talked about how much he wanted to play in the PL as a kid, he was also linked with united and liverpool in the past, I can see him going for another big 6 club soon


MajorBubbleT

He wont stay at Leeds after they’ve agreed a deal with Chelsea. If Barca doesn’t happen, he will go to Chelsea


jMS_44

>He can’t stay at Leeds after they’ve agreed a deal with Chelsea. Well, he can if the player won't agree to contract.


MajorBubbleT

Well you’re reaching here. No way he turns down Chelsea to play for Leeds (unless Barca is involved). Chelsea simply can offer him a lot more and I’m not sure if he wants to spend the prime years of his career in a relegation battle/bottom half team. No disrespect to Leeds but he is ready for the next step


acasovoycayendo

He could wait for Barca and hope he can get a move in Jan/summer 2023 Signing for Chelsea will lock him into a long term contract and would likely end his Barca dream.


Cocobon95

Yes he can. All three parties have to agree to a deal, not just two of them. Players aren’t slaves that can be sent away somewhere against their will


FuckOffBoJo

Yeah Leeds will force him there at gunpoint?


jkeefy

That’s, not how it works…

cookievanop

What the fuck is going on


CompetitiveYouth864

I know right


digosilva19

this plus Mephis Depay strange tweet, could this be Barca offering Depay + cash to Leeds?


tyrantxiv

Depay would never agree to go to Leeds.


Yogesh11235

That's gonna be fun when Leeds play United.


Blue_Dreamed

I don't wanna fuckin play you lot again, keep conceding over 3 times


mandrake_cry

That's what they're speculating on Romero's stream


RipJug

No way Depay agrees to that surely


mandrake_cry

Idk man maybe Depay wants to go from Barcelona to Leeds for a relegation battle


Don_Kahones

The only way I can see he accepts it would be for play time in the lead up to the WC.


acasovoycayendo

As if Leeds/Depay accept that


CorbeauS

Why wouldn’t Leeds accept Depay?


thedaftfool

what tweet


inflamesburn

He clearly wants Barca, but Barca needs to figure out their budget because there are negotiations with several players going on, so they can't promise him anything atm


Laurkjl

There are more details Gerard Romero hasn't revealed yet. Romero is questioning why Deco is at Barcelona if Leeds and Chelsea have come to terms. Why aren't Chelsea negotiating with Deco. The ball is in the air, either Chelsea or Barcelona could lose, but Raphinha's priority is to go to Barcelona. Romero says he can could give more details, but he can't


notk1x

So his "breaking" news is basically nothing ? We all knew that Raphina had agreed terms with Barca and it was his priority to go there. He is unable to go there because barca can't pay 60M pounds but chelsea can. ​ We all know that leeds won't accept barca's offer if it isn't very close to 60M. We still don't know whether Barca can match that price. For all the things in the world maybe Deco just went to Barca to ask them one last time "You sure you don't want to pay 60M ?"


cookievanop

Given that Barca is Raphinha first choice it can get very messy. Deco and Raphinha could put pressure on Leeds to accept a lower offer cause in the end the player has to agree to the move. Plus transfers outside the PL tend to be not as costly so Leeds could see the compromise of not having to face Raphinha.


icklegizmo

I doubt there’s much pressure they can put on the club to be honest. We’ve been clear on his price tag and he’s been clear on his preference. If Barca can’t get the cash together to make it work, I’d say we’d be happy to keep him another season and let him leave for Barca next year. If I had to guess, I’d say he’s asked Chelsea to include a release clause to let him go to Barca if they come knocking and that’s where personal terms have fallen down.


notk1x

>Plus transfers outside the PL tend to be not as costly so Leeds could see the compromise of not having to face Raphinha. This is most definitely not a legitimate reason for leeds to sell low. You really thing leeds are gonna charge some one like man city or chelsea another 10M because their team is now gonna loose by 6 goals instead of 5 (exaggeration here but you get the point)? ​ raphina doesn't hold many cards in this situation at all to "force" leeds to lower the price.


cookievanop

No, but it's well documented that many transfers inside PL happen for a price that is inflated relative to other leagues. If Raphinha prefers Barca and states that he won't go elsewhere Leeds will be put in a tough spot, they either keep him for a year, hope they don't get relegated and sell Raphinha then for a way smaller price or get more (but not as much as they'd like) money and reinvest it now.


therealpiccles

Plus the morale aspect could have a negative effect in the dressing room.


SpectacularSophistry

Honestly if you tell pro athletes “I know you want this move, but they are only offering half the transfer fee another club is” they will be disappointed but understanding. Everyone gets why


69BigDickMan420

Leeds can decide to keep him if that’s the case. No reason to accept a low offer and be bullied.


Seanxprt

Leeds should tell Barcelona to match our offer or get lost.


cookievanop

They can, but if Raphinha declares that he only wants to go Barca it complicates things for Leeds significantly.


Blue_Dreamed

Hes still got a contract with us, if he's going to go that way then I guess we keep him another year. We won't lowball this shit.


OleoleCholoSimeone

>We all knew that Raphina had agreed terms with Barca and it was his priority to go there. Not everyone, I was arguing with some Arsenal fans who legit questioned him wanting to join Barca and said that their journalists had even "said the opposite" whatever that means Despite everyone and their dog reporting from day 1 that he only wants Barca as long as that opportunity is alive


bass1879

> So his "breaking" news is basically nothing ? Welcome to Gerard Romero's streams


ItalianPasta6

"Things are happening."


jMS_44

Well, if 60m pounds offer from us is on Leeds table then Barca may have hard time matching that.


Designer_Surprise263

Player could refuse you.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Designer_Surprise263

I've heard leeds are planning to bring 3 more players in after his and Philips sale. They might need to for that


lambalambda

If we don't sell Raphinha we just won't bring in the planned replacement.


Designer_Surprise263

Fair enough


jMS_44

I'm not saying he can't, I'm saying Barca would have problem striking the deal in first place. You have to ask if knowing that Barca wouldn't be able to pay similar money, is Raphinha willing to stay for another year or would he decide to go to us.


Designer_Surprise263

Yeah I worded it poorly. My point was Raphinia could hold out only for Barça and force the hand of Leeds to some degree.


Billy_LDN

This makes it sounds like he’s putting 2+2 together, I guess we’ll find out more when others start updating.


PasuljsKolenicom

With all this shit he will, if he doesn’t go to Barca, get payed mad money. Can imagine Leeds aren’t very happy with this, can’t see Barca paying even our offer, let alone the one you put up yesterday.


BigAssBreadroll

I can't even believe we put in an offer that high. I'm not surprised you guys were trying to bring the fee down, £65m is insane he's not worth that


PasuljsKolenicom

Other then Gnabry there is no winger I would be more happy then if we got Raphinha (not counting completely unrealistic ones). It is a lot but I still wish we match your offer, he is class.


XuloMalacatones

Yea I watched the streaming for 2 minutes and all he is doing is collecting viewers. The guy was analyzing Mateu Alemany's smile after his reporter asked a question. He has nothing if you ask me


ReDK1LL

This news he's had for like an hour and he's been an hour making calls about it and asking "permission".


jMS_44

Is it even confirmed that Deco is in Barcelona about Raphinha? He is doing scouting job for you, no? They may have a meeting about a completely different topic.


Boris_Ignatievich

doesn't Deco literally work for Barcelona, separate from his agent work? "man shows up to his company's office" doesn't feel like a major headline tbh. But whatever - if Barcelona can match Chelsea's bid I'd rather he went there tbh. If they can't then they can piss off


Tr_Omer

Getting the amount of money you wanted AND the player goes outside the Premier League surely is your club's priority. But what I don't understand is for the past 2 weeks its been Barcelona interested in XYZ yet they couldn't even register 1 of the free transfers yet since the transfer window opened due to financial issues.


lstht123

Can’t register a player yet anyway. Their old contracts run until 30th of June. Announcements for Kessie/Christensen are rumored to happen on the weekend


notk1x

What an amazing breaking "BOMB" news Basically barca is still trying to sign a player with whom they had an agreement on personal terms. Its not even confirmed whether barca are willing to match the 60M pounds chelsea are paying. Romero is a clown who is farming subs for his twitch channel.


bass1879

> Romero is a clown who is farming subs for his twitch channel. agreed


IAM4UK

Barca likely can't afford to splash 60m on raph and then 50m or so on Lewa AND not sell FDJ. I don't understand how Barca is being linked to everyone and is strapped for cash.


EezoManiac

We got linked to players when we were legally banned from engaging in almost every operation possible.


SirBarkington

Yeah that was really weird to me. We also got linked to players during our transfer ban which was strange.


Inght

Chelsea was still able to sign players just not register them until the following January I believe.


RN2FL9

Yeah, they can't even confirm the players who are coming for free yet, strange situation.


[deleted]

>AND not sell FDJ. Good thing they're selling FDJ then


IAM4UK

He might have something to say about that according to recent reports.


[deleted]

You mean the Sport reports, same guys who "confirmed" the agreement with Chelsea and Dembele how long ago? The people on this sub have just been posting whatever they can find without any regard to source quality. You'll see Moi Llorens or Mundo Deportivo reports and everyone in the comments takes it like it's a fact.


[deleted]

[удалено]


IAM4UK

ah okay. Silly season amogus


Claytonbigsbys

I don’t think we’re signing Lewa. Frankly I don’t even want him


NorthwardRM

Hes not a clown. He literally has a video of Deco going into Barcelona offices live


Tiwaa

You do know that Deco is Barcelonas chief scout for South America? Could mean nothing.


notk1x

For all we know Deco could have gone there to literally say "Chelsea are pretty close and the deal is gonna get wrapped up but you still have time to pay leeds **60M POUNDS**" Now whats more breaking would be Barca actually willing to pay leeds that amount. He hasn't said any of that has he ? Besides I was on his stream the bloke took 30mins to say just a single line that is still pointless in the grand scheme of things.


ballsdeeptackler

Why spend 30 minutes watching a stream of someone you think is a clown? Baffling stuff.


trainerN

Man United fans watch 90 minutes of their clowns every week so I don’t see how you can think this is baffling


ballsdeeptackler

I mean, I can be baffled at both lol


notk1x

I was eating my food and I didn't have much else to watch. If this was literally hours later then i would have watched Faze vs Forze... I also didn't want to watch xqc or any other twitch streamer either. I didn't want to watch random youtube comps of footballers, I didn't want to watch any TV series because I am so hopeless that I get sucked into stuff and until I complete it I basically won't do the stuff I have to do. Most of It was a Big Breaking so I thought I should maybe watch, I did and i regret it.


ballsdeeptackler

I’m just saying, it sounds like you’re wasting your time and purposefully making yourself angry.


notk1x

I am not angry but yes I am wasting my time.


ballsdeeptackler

Word. It's okay to eat and not watch something too, it can be a nice break.

The gazumper has become the gazumpee


sakanelli

🤝


Cowdude179

They don't have the 60m up front for Leeds, man said Kounde was done already too 😭


Hech15

The player can just say he doesn't want Chelsea or Arsenal or any transfer except barca then it's upto leeds if they would end up keeping him or accept a lower price


jolle2001

Leeds wont accept 35m when it was his relegation clause


Cowdude179

What happens to the Lewy deal? And Dembele?


Claytonbigsbys

Fuck em


Cowdude179

Nice, looks like we'll land Dembele now


Claytonbigsbys

Good luck


girono

Gazump the gazumpers. Still wanna know what’ll happen with Depay


NorthwardRM

Is Raphinha that good?


MA_Tingle

With what money?


Ruud_Boltz

We got something more precious than money LEVERS


chanjitsu

Have you got a 60m for raphinha lever?


Brashmate

Well I mean you’re literally just about to buy a player off them


MA_Tingle

Don’t think it’ll happen tbh, we’re just wasting time going after a player who on countless occasions has stated he is at his dream club and does not want to leave


Itsthellama

I can't tell if Barca in this transfer window is the Black knight without limbs from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, or if they're the "I'm not dead yet" guy from the same.


LFCBoi55

Only .18€ a month and Barca can sign raphinha, remember every donation counts.


toulousefc

Lol hijack season babbyyyyyy. SIUUUUUUU


a-messy-burrito

For some reason though, Raphinha in the middle doesn't have the same ring to it like Malcom.


sakanelli

Did Barca just Gazuump us and chelsea?


SiwyWF

Chelsea gazumped us, now Barca is gazumping Chelsea, it's time for us to gazump Barca.


sakanelli

We don't have that capacity pal 😭😭


SiwyWF

Let's just do it for the meme at this point


Illusive_Lust

Barca sure in the news a lot for a team that "cant sign any of their players". Damn Lakers of LaLiga


FarAcanthocephala

Reads out like a movie plot


Jose9012

But if they can’t match the offer then what? He stays at Leeds?


[deleted]

[удалено]


Hannibal09

Tuchel must have told him his wing back plans for the next season


AWr1ght98

This is bollocks, Barca don’t have the money we want for Raphinha and I doubt they’d pay it if they had it. Barca is obvs his first choice but this will be more of a last chance to sign Rapha before he’s sold to Chelsea kind of thing rather than any meaningful transfer talk.


rossmosh85

My two thoughts are: 1. There's no really wrong choice for Raphinha. He's picking between a bunch of very good clubs. Arsenal guarantees him the most playing time and room to continue to develop. Barca and Chelsea give him the better chance to win trophies. 2. I think Raphina is going to underwhelm in the end. I just don't see it.


bobbadbilla

Personally don’t know what to make of this, the player is great and one I feel would do well in the team. However, the feee is large and he doesn’t consider us his first option. Feel like we need more players who actually want to play here and not merely because they had no other choice


TheBoyPJ

Most players would drop whatever club they're at to go to Barcelona or Real if offered the opportunity


bobbadbilla

That’s fine but the commitment should be ther Hazard always dreamed of Madrid but till his contract was there gave his all to us. I don’t want more lukaku who starts whining the second things don’t go his way


Billy_LDN

Lesson one for Todd, only bid when you have an agreement with the player. Hopefully we withdraw our interest


WittyReindeer

guessing it's Barca > Chelsea > Arsenal/Spurs as his top choices. Barca didn't look like they were going to pay so he agreed terms with Chelsea and this is either Barca paying up now or Deco pushing Barca since they're Raphinha's first choice


Barkasia

I hope you do too


akshatsood95

I doubt you didn't have agreement with Raphinha. Probably he expected Barca won't pay up so he'll go to Chelsea. I think it's been pretty clear Barca were his first choice. Barca apparently have money so Chelsra got screwed. Not really Todd's mistake.


Ok-Industry120

Maybe Deco just misses Barcelona and the *sniffff* nightlife there?


jkeefy

He literally lives there still 😆


samarth67

65 million is still too much for him. Would be happy either way.


Environmental_Run634

Barca must be activating more levers.


genk41

i would advise no one should make raphinha compilations before the deal become official


Claypothos

Meanwhile Raphina living it up in Qatar


KyouSpectre

Also need to remember that Deco also works at Barca as one of their scouts in South America.


duxie

Also need to remember that Deco used to play for Chelsea.


vulturevan

Barcelona just keep inventing money, fascinating to see


2kku

Operation: Levers


tr2727

Chelsea should just go after Lewandowski than, Gazump for a Gazump I say this because if he just wants to go to Barca, he will push for a move in 2-3 years again when Barca have some money And Lewandowski might adress the goalscoring issues at Chelsea Not everytime players like Lewandowski, Ronaldo and Neymar are available in market when a club needs a statement signing, Lew might be the most reasonable deal with reasonable salery


GreatWhiteNorthExtra

How can I believe any headline involving Barca that doesn't have the word "lever" in it?


MediocreOwl8427

Take every cent up front Leeds. I don't have any confidence that they'll pay up in the future. Mfs literally choose to be in debt or not based on the situation and their statements.


lostmarkaj

ok, my opinion now is that all those wannabe barca players have a hero complex. players know barca has no money but they try to get in and be some kind of new messi(ah). I will save this club if you take me... it's kinda stupid but entertaining.


Mick4Audi

Go on Barca


Buffythedragonslayer

That's the bomba?


sakanelli

Bomba is Frenkie staying at Barca. It is known.


ygog45

Good, 60 million pounds for him was too much to begin with


fuckyouidontneedone

They can’t even pay/register him but by all means Gazump away


Hech15

U need a good one on one winger we have that in London and he is from ivory Coast only 1/3rd of raphinhas price


uchiha_building

Idk Wilfried Zaha is a little old at this point


Hech15

I am talking about a winger 3 years younger than zaha .. He who should not be named


NorthwardRM

> They can’t even pay/register him but by all means > > Yes they can


bass1879

Fawkes_91

How? Barca going to offer some of old boots for the Leeds team?

ShadowHunter2206

So this is da bomb


JMC_97

Barcelona gazump Chelsea who gazumped Arsenal.


cookievanop

For Chelsea to actually gazump us they would have to complete the signing. It's more like Barca gazumped both Chelsea and Arsenal.


Ruud_Boltz

Turns out Deco just wanted to chat up with old mates at Barcelona


Bladerslash

Chelsea gazumps arsenal barcelona gazumps chelsea. What a chain fuck


SullaInvictus

Barca seems like all smoke no fire. I think they pulled the wrong lever.


Skadrys

well thats going to be interesting overpay. That kills any hopes for silva, dembele is gone and we can hope for lewandowski and maybe barely for koundé


sakanelli

Bruh believe me Raphinha (unreal work rate) will do better than what Dembele had done in 5 years. Left footed right-winger market is very limited and price is alright for him.


Skadrys

I think renewing Dembélé would be more economically viable than paying somewhere around 60m for raphinha and his salary. Dembélé despite having shit decision making and end product (except for crosses) is still better player who is accustomed to Barcelona and club and looks like he overcame his injuries. Also Xavi likes him and publicly supported him many times.


II_MrBlack_II

Double agent deco


Uyemaz

Feel like this is just pressure for Dembele to sign the contract. If Raphinha signs with Barca, Dembele might go to Chelsea.


TitanX11

It's a win win for both clubs, either way they both get players.
