Leeds winger Raphinha continues to be linked with a move to Barcelona and his father has now spoken out about a possible move.

Raphael Belloli admits there is a chance the winger could leave Elland Road this summer but said nothing has been decided yet.

“There are possibilities, but these possibilities involve three parties: the interested club, the current one and the player,” he said.

“[Raphinha] is calm because he has a contract and all the options depend on him. What he knows is what has come out in the press, nothing more.”

Barcelona are being tipped to move for Raphinha if Ousmane Dembele ends up leaving on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of next month.

Raphinha is thought to be keen on a move to the Camp Nou but the asking price could be a problem. The forward would have been available for just €25m if Leeds had been relegated but the Whites stayed up on the final day of the season.

Leeds are now thought to be asking for around €55m for Raphinha, a price which may just be out of Barcelona’s reach this summer.
