Manchester United might see Marcus Rashford depart for a new club this summer, yet the English powerhouse has preemptively arranged for his substitute.

A stunning report has emerged, indicating that Manchester United is close to securing Barcelona winger Raphinha under an ‘agreement in principle’, amidst sensational revelations that Marcus Rashford may transfer to another major European club this summer.

Barcelona, faced with financial difficulties, is planning to sell some of their valuable players this coming summer. The club aims to retain its core young stars and key players, choosing instead to part ways with those who play less central roles.

Raphinha, who joined Barcelona from Leeds United for a fee that includes £55m in add-ons, is reportedly among those being considered for sale. Despite contributing to 37 goals in 78 appearances for Barcelona, the rise of young talent Lamine Yamal has seen Raphinha’s role diminish.

His proven impact in the Premier League with Leeds suggests he could be a significant addition to Manchester United. Spanish media, as referenced by Goal, claim that negotiations between Manchester United and Barcelona over the 27-year-old are advancing, with an initial deal set at around €50m, excluding potential add-ons.

With Manchester United likely to offload Antony, Mason Greenwood, and Jason Sancho after this season, acquiring a new right winger seems logical.

Although Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise, who has a release clause of about £60m and is notably favored by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has been identified as a target, reports from Spain suggest that Raphinha is the one expected to join Manchester United for the upcoming season.
