Representatives of MU just contacted Barcelona to discuss the transfer of Raphinha in January 2024.
MU went through the beginning of the 2023-24 season with many difficulties, from the Premier League to the Champions League. One of them is the very poor performance of the offensive line.
That forces MU to make big changes in the winter transfer period.
MU’s plan is to quickly liquidate Antony and recruit Raphinha to strengthen the ability to attack the right wing.
Antony has yet to score on the Premier League and Champions League fronts, with a total of 17 shots.
Experience of Raphinha in the Premier League is a factor that helps him be pursued by MU officials.
Raphinha was once a Leeds star who played prominently in the system’s highest tournament English footballhelping him be pursued by the big guys MU or Chelsea.
However, in the summer of 2022, Raphinha decided to join Barca because he was convinced by Xavi Hernandez’s project.
This season, Raphinha is no longer an irreplaceable factor for Xavi. Furthermore, Barca has not yet escaped financial difficulties so they are ready to sell the Brazilian player.
MU is negotiating with Barca to reduce the transfer fee of 70 million euros requested by the Catalan club.
