Barcelona new signing from Premier League side Leeds United, has proven his worth and has passed his early test in Barcelona after the El Clasico clash against Real Madrid.
Fc Barcelona might have finally seemed to have gotten a replacement for departed legend Leo Messi to Paris Saint Germain.
However Raphinha has also seemed to have taken the place of injury prone Neymar Jr. Raphinha is currently tying the highest Barcelona goal with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Raphinha scored a beautiful long range goal from a 30 yard area which fans explained as a Leo Messi type of goal.
Raphinha has confessed his love for Barcelona and has dedicated his football career to playing for Barcelona.
Neymar Junior with no doubt is a more skillful player than Raphinha but never really produced what tip-tap Barcelona would love.
Raphinha on the other hand plays a little more like Leo Messi. Raphinha spreads the ball from left to right and also gives the midfield taste of it. Other than Neymar Jr who dribbles a lot when he is ought to pass to his teammate.
However, Neymar Jr and Leo Messi had a greatly linked combination which ended up in a success at Barcelona. Raphinha on the other hand is till new and has not yet played a La Liga game for Barcelona but is performing very well in the pre season alongside his opposite winger Ansu Fati.
