Raphinha has yet to really impress at Barcelona.

Barcelona forward Raphinha has sent out a message to supporters amid speculation that the Catalan giants are already thinking about offloading the Brazilian.

Raphinha only arrived at the club in the summer transfer window in a deal worth €60 million but has struggled to make much of an impact so far and has only started 7 La Liga matches.

The forward has just arrived in Saudi Arabia with the Barcelona squad for a Spanish Super Cup clash with Copa del Rey winners Real Betis and has responded to rumors about his future.

“The first thing you need for a great dream to come true, is to have a great dream,” he wrote on Instagram. Raphinha has previously admitted that he had fulfilled a “childhood dream” by signing for Barcelona from Leeds United.

The Brazil international’s post suggests he’s unwilling to give up on that dream just yet. Raphinha has openly admitted he has so far found it difficut to adapt to life at the Camp Nou.

The 26-year-old has also revealed he has told Xavi that he has been unhappy with his role at the club and wants to play on the right of the attack, which is his best position, rather than the left.
