Barcelona could sign €15m-rated midfielder Raphael Veiga this summer

Barcelona are reportedly keen on signing Palmeiras star Raphael Veiga in the summer transfer window. 

The Catalans recently claimed the La Liga title for the first time since 2019. Their 4-2 success over Espanyol on Sunday sealed the league crown for Xavi Hernandez in his first full season as manager. 

However, their performances in Europe were highly disappointing as they finished below Bayern Munich and Inter Milan in their Champions League group to drop down to the Europa League. 

They fell at the first hurdle in the second-tier competition, with Manchester United beating them 4-3 in the two-legged knockout round play-offs. 

Barcelona will be looking for reinforcements in midfield this summer, but their Financial Fair Play problems mean they must target cheaper options. 

According to SPORT, they could sign Palmeiras midfielder Raphael Veiga as a ‘low-cost’ option.  

The 27-year-old started his career at Coritiba before switching to Periquito Verde in 2017. 

He has been an excellent acquisition for the Brazilian outfit, making 212 senior appearances. 

The attacking midfielder has scored 18 or more goals in each of the last three campaigns for Palmeiras. He has already bagged ten goals and six assists in 20 appearances this season. 

His current contract at Allianz Parque expires in December 2026, but he is reportedly available to sign for only €15 million. 

Considering his quality and the fee involved, Veiga would be a solid signing for Barca.
