Barcelona want to cash in on Raphinha in the summer despite the winger scoring the winner against Las Palmas recently.

It is no secret that we missed out on a number of transfer targets that Mauricio Pochettino really wanted to sign, as targets simply did not want to join the Blues vision.

There was also speculation in the media that the likes of Raphinha and Frenkie De Jong were also players that the club were interested in signing, but were unable to get any deals done as they wanted to stay at the Camp Nou.

However – The Catalan club continue to find themselves in a financial mess as they are still operating above the €270m (£234m/$282m) La Liga-imposed annual spending limit.

And according to Sport, the club is ready to sacrifice an important piece of the jigsaw. The decision will be taken by sporting director Deco, who will look to sell among players who have had the least minutes.

SPORT claims that the Catalan giants will consider selling the player if the right offer arrives in the upcoming summer transfer window. After Ousmane Dembele left for Paris Saint-Germain last summer, Raphinha was promoted as the first-choice right winger by Xavi.

However, the Brazil international failed to live up to the expectations as time and again Lamine Yamal and Ferran Torres has taken his place in the Barcelona starting lineup.
