Raphinha currently earns €5.5m per year, and the Blaugrana will still have at least €36m to ammortise, meaning a sale for Raphinha would represent a hefty saving.

Barcelona have theoretically placed his price tag at €80m, but it is hard to see them turning down the chance to make their money back on a signing that has not been a complete success, while their financial situation looks so desperate.

Where they may run into some problems is that Raphinha not only has made it clear he wants to stay in Catalonia, but whether he would like to move to Saudi Arabia is another issue.
