Leeds owner on Rafinha: “We agreed with Chelsea, but Barca convinced him to wait. If they don’t pay, all the media will start a case against them” – Football

The Leeds owner has revealed why Rafinha Diaz moved to Barcelona and not Chelsea.

“Barcelona didn’t have a clear player buying situation, but they were shopping around but couldn’t confirm the deals because their financial situation was unclear. They tried to keep the players while fixing their problems.

We couldn’t reach an agreement with Barcelona because they were unable to negotiate. So we made a deal with Chelsea. Rafinha wanted to leave and was open to offers from the Premier League, with Chelsea in an advantageous position. Barcelona influenced the player and convinced him to wait and wait and wait until they found a solution.

Unfortunately, this shows the power of the players and their agents in a system that is, in my opinion, overblown. It’s too much.

The deal with Chelsea was made. I was ashamed to go back to Todd Boeli and change our position. It was disrespectful and wrong for me, but I had no choice.

If I could, I wouldn’t sell Rafinha at all, but I didn’t have a choice. It was more important for us to buy six players than to keep one Rafinha,” Andrea Radrizzani told The Athletic.

The owner of the English club also answered the question of whether Barcelona is able to pay for Rafinha’s transfer.

“I will tell you on September 2nd. If not, then a global case against Barcelona will begin in all media,” Radrizzani said.

Leeds fined 10 million euros for Barca for late payment on Rafinha
