Why Raphinha Might Regret Ditching Chelsea For Xavi Hernandez's Barcelona

Following Raphinha's decision to pick Xavi Hernandez's Barcelona ahead of Chelsea in the ongoing summer transfer window, the Leeds United star player won't be wearing the famous Chelsea blue jersey next season despite reaching a verbal agreement with the West London club.

According to reports, the Brazilian international Raphinha had a medical in Barcelona earlier today after the club's transfer agents reached an agreed fee with Leeds United. Barcelona will pay £55 million up front, with a further £10m potentially paid in add-ons.

The Leeds United stat player Raphinha ditched Chelsea for Xavi Hernandez's Barcelona at the last minute. Chelsea was on the brink of completing a deal for the star before the Catalonia club came from behind to hijack the deal.

Well, it might be hard to push the narrative that the Brazilian forward might regret why he ditched Chelsea for Barcelona in the coming season. Based on stats, the West London club currently portrays a more formidable squad than Xavi Hernandez's Barcelona with the recent addition of Senegalese central-back and England international Raheem Sterling in the team.

Barcelona is also a team filled with talented star players but Chelsea has more chances of handing the Brazilian international titles with their current formidable squad. In recent seasons Raphinha might regret his decision for picking Xavi Hernandez's Barcelona ahead of Chelsea.
