Finance Expert reacts to Leeds United and Barcelona saga over Raphinha

Football finance expert Dr. Daniel Plumley, our exclusive columnist, is optimistic about Leeds United eventually receiving the money owed to them by Barcelona for Raphinha’s transfer. This follows a report by ARA on October 10th, indicating that Barcelona still owes Leeds United over £50 million, both in the short and long term, for the Brazilian winger.

Dr. Plumley acknowledges that Leeds might need to renegotiate the payment terms, possibly extending the deadline beyond the initial agreement between the two clubs. Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, he stressed that the risk isn’t unique to Leeds but extends to any club involved in recent dealings with Barcelona.

Given Barcelona’s challenging financial situation and their history of delayed payments, there’s always a level of uncertainty in such transfers. Nevertheless, Dr. Plumley believes that even in the worst-case scenario for Barcelona, football creditors are usually paid. He also takes into account Barcelona’s potential to generate revenue in the future, which balances the long-term risk. In essence, Dr. Plumley believes that Leeds United is likely to receive the owed money, but the timing remains uncertain, and a renegotiation of terms might be necessary due to the evolving situation.
