Raphinha and wife Taia Rodrigues are enjoying a relaxing trip to Ibiza amid uncertainty over his club future

The Leeds winger is set to snub Arsenal and Chelsea for a dream move to Barcelona.

But that may be the last thing on his mind as he chills on the sand in a bucket hat and sunglasses.

Partner Taia - short for Natalia - was sporting a skimpy black Dsquared2 thong bikini.

She has also shared photos on her Instagram of the pair enjoying the time off.

One wholesome snap shows the couple laughing by a pool with their golden retriever.

Rodrigues is enjoying the off-season with her beau, where they have enjoyed time in Ibiza as well as Doha in Qatar.

The duo were married at the start of the year as smooth operator Raphinha proposed to wife Taia in some style.

On the eve of her birthday with a candle-lit path through the house for her to walk down.

He then dropped down to one knee in front of a huge lit-up 'Marry Me' sign and asked, as she beamed at his proposal.

The romantic Brazil international also rushed to hug Rodrigues after he helped Leeds complete a great escape in May.

Raphinha played a key role in securing the club's Premier League safety, scoring 11 goals in 35 appearances.

He is reportedly set to receive a massive pay rise if his proposed move to Barcelona goes through.

The midfielder will reportedly receive a lucrative contract worth £5.2million per year should the deal go through.

That works out to be £100,000 a week, a whopping £40,000 increase on the winger's current weekly wages.

Chelsea appeared to move into pole position to sign Raphinha earlier this week after they tabled a bid north of £55million for his services.

But a late swoop from Barcelona could potentially scupper the west Londoners' pursuit of the player - with the Blues now moving for Raheem Sterling instead.

The Catalans have reportedly agreed to meet Leeds' asking price for the 25-year-old after his agent - former Barca midfielder Deco - met with club chiefs earlier this week.
