Poyet reacts as Chelsea reach agreement to sign Brazil star


Former Chelsea star, Gustavo Poyet, has reacted to the Blues’ decision to sign Raphinha. According to Poyet, the Brazilian winger will make a good addition at Chelsea if the deal comes through.

Chelsea has reached an agreement with Leeds United worth £60 million for Raphinha, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

While Barcelona are in the race to also get a deal done that would see them sign Raphinha to Camp Nou, but their financial constraint has held them back.

Speaking to Lord Ping, Poyet stated that the 25- year-old would be playing in a much different role from his time at Leeds United if he moved to Chelsea. Poyet said,

“Raphinha is a very good player. We need to see if he can step up at a different club because he was the star man at Leeds and now he is going to be one of many great players at Chelsea – it is a different responsibility.”
