BarcelonaAnderson Luiz de Souza, Deco, is a key piece to understanding the arrival of Raphinha Dias at Barça. Without him, in fact, the former Leeds player would have stayed in the Premier League and not gone to Barcelona. The Brazilian striker had many suitors, especially from the English league, but the Barça club managed to compete hand-to-hand with clubs that enjoy much greater financial freedom to bring him on board. The key factor? The intermediation of Deco, its representative, in the negotiations. The ex-player advises Barça on the Brazilian and Portuguese market without receiving any salary, according to reports from the Camp Nou. He started in the world of representation at the hands of Jorge Mendes, a key figure in the Blaugrana market movements.
