Barcelona are looking to complete a double swoop, shelling out over 100m euros in the process, as Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski could be the latest additions come the end of next week.
The Catalan side have now formalised their offer for the Leeds United man, offering a base fee of 58m euros which, with add ons, could rise to 68m euros (£58m).
The Yorkshire side are likely to accept the deal, despite it being less than Chelsea's offer, due to Raphinha's preference to make the move to the Camp Nou this summer.
And the spending is not set to end there either, with a new bid being made for Robert Lewandowski in the coming days, thought to be for a fee around 50m euros plus potential add-ons.
This would take their spending to upwards of 100m euros for the summer, helped undoubtedly by the financial levers activated by the Catalan club which has involved selling their future media rights.
Should they add both players to their squad, they will have quite the forward line, having added Memphis Depay to their side 12 months ago and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres in January.
