PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has apologised to Todd Boehly and admits he felt "ashamed" to have to inform Chelsea of Raphinha's £55million transfer U-turn. The Brazilian international eventually joined Jules Kounde in snubbing Chelsea for Barcelona this summer as, despite their financial troubles, both saw Xavi's project as the one for them. On Raphinha though more specifically, Arsenal were the frontrunners in this transfer race for a while before Chelsea gazumped their London rivals with a £55million bid. It was an offer that was accepted and created a lot of excitement at the time with the Blues fanbase.

. "We made the deal with Chelsea because the player wanted to go and he was open to listening to offers from Premier League clubs. "Chelsea was in his favourable [option]. But unfortunately, let’s say Barcelona influences convinced the player to wait, to wait, to wait until they could find a solution. This shows again the power and the leverage players and their agents have in the system, which for me is exaggerated, too much. We do a lot of investment to build clubs. We invest hundreds of millions but all the power it seems to be (with) agents and representatives of these players.” READ NEXT: Koulibaly in, Sterling starts – the strongest Chelsea side Thomas Tuchel can pick vs Everton Chelsea news and transfers LIVE: All the latest updates and rumours from Stamford Bridge Full Chelsea Premier League fixture list for 2022/23 Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea face fresh questions after summer of change Chelsea preparing fresh £70m bid for Wesley Fofana as Todd Boehly aims to secure fifth signing
