Barcelona reportedly fail with a £47m bid for Leeds United winger Raphinha, significantly lower than the Brazil international's release clause.

Leeds United have reportedly rejected a £47m offer from Barcelona for winger Raphinha.

Despite failing to reach the heights of his first year at Elland Road, the attacker still contributed 11 goals and three assists in the Premier League during 2021-22.

The latest of those came on Sunday as Leeds posted a 2-1 win over Brentford to remain in the top flight, but focus will now turn to whether the Brazil international will remain in Yorkshire.

Barcelona allegedly hold a long-standing interest in the 25-year-old but according to FootballTransfers, Leeds have no intention of selling at the current price.

The Catalan giants are said to have failed with an offer of £47m, substantially lower than Raphinha's alleged £64m release clause.

Leeds reportedly expect Barcelona to return with an improved proposal, although it is unlikely to match the option that is present in the player's contract.

Raphinha has two years remaining on his existing deal at Leeds.
