Raphinha’s wife sends sweetest message to celebrate winger’s move to Barca.


“It’s official today! Raphael, better known as Raphinha, I met you as a dreamy boy, full of wishes and dreams. Seeing you today accomplishing what we prayed would happen fills my heart with pride,” Raphinha’s wife Natalia writes on Instagram.


“A warrior of a boy, who doesn’t run away from the fight until he wins, fulfils all his goals with a lot of passion and commitment. Does not tire of seeking perfection in everything he does until he is successfully accomplished.

The Brazilian has signed a contract with Barcalona until 2026. The Catalans will pay €58m plus add-ons for Raphinha, although the payment will be made in instalments.
