Raphinha joins FC Barcelona as the newest Brazilian phenomenon.

Raphinha, a Brazilian winger, has moved from Leeds United to Barcelona after the two teams reached an agreement on a transfer that might result in the LaLiga giants paying the Premier League club €65 million.

Several Brazilian players, some of whom are football legends, have donned FC Barcelona’s illustrious jersey in the past. Some successful Blaugrana players include Ronaldinho, Neymar, Luis Ronaldo, Rivaldo, and Romario.

There have also been instances of Brazilians who fell short of expectations. For instance, Philippe Coutinho was purchased in January 2018 for a €160 million transfer record.

Despite staying with the team until 2021, Coutinho had little effect. Before being permanently acquired by the Premier League club for €20 million at the conclusion of the 2021/22 season, he was first loaned out to Bayern Munich and then Aston Villa.
