Leeds could miss out on £14m in Raphinha deal between Barcelona and Chelsea bids

The fee was reportedly £49m, which could rise to £55m if the goals are met. Chelsea offered the full £55m up front, but given Ravenha’s position, Leeds felt compelled to surrender to Barcelona.

In addition, these variables are said to be difficult to come by, with a large part of the extra money dependent on Barcelona winning the Champions League. If the full amount of the variables are met, it would take the deal to €60m (£51.15m).

If none of them are met, it could leave Leeds without just over the £14m they had hoped to get from Chelsea. While that number will likely be somewhere in the middle, sporting director Victor Orta will no doubt be frustrated that Leeds will take at least £3.85m less than they could have gotten.
