Liverpool leading race to sign 24-year-old Brazilian winger

Leeds United winger Raphinha has gone on to the record to reveal how being linked with a summer move to Liverpool and Man United feels. The 24-year-old forward joined the Peacocks in the summer of 2020 after making a £16.7m switch from the French side Rennes.

Since arriving in Yorkshire, Raphinha has gone on to feature in 31 games, in all tournaments, directly contributing to 15 goals along the way. After enjoying a hugely impressive PL debuting season, the Brazilian winger has recently seen his name linked with a huge move, to both Liverpool and the Norwegian manager’s Man United.

Weighing in on the stunning links, the Brazilian winger said: “It is difficult to explain how I feel when I hear speculation about giant teams like Liverpool and Manchester United being interested in signing me.”

Leeds United will undoubtedly want to do all they can to keep hold of their team’s best footballer and they may have been offered a boost. Man United have identified four footballers ahead of the summer window, Harry Kane, Jadon Sancho, Declan Rice and Pau Torres.

With the Brazilian forward not among the list of names on Man United’s summer wish-list and Liverpool’s attention firmly set on the arrival of Ibrahima Konate, the Whites could be set to retain Raphinha, after all.
