Manchester United to bid for Raphinha

Raphinha is preparing to leave Leeds United after the current season ends. Which means Manchester United are battling to sign him this summer. However there is an intense battle between Barcelona and Chelsea for the signature of the Brazilian international.

Several clubs are lining up to make a move for the 25-year-old winger in the summer transfer window. Raphinha performance at Leeds United and his maturity levels initially had made Liverpool and Manchester United interested. Raphinha’s performances and maturity levels have captivated Liverpool fans. 

Although Liverpool is known to have many established forwards, it is unlikely a move to the Merseyside club will be feasible for the Brazilian, given how much he is likely to cost. Leeds United turned down an offer from West Ham United in the winter. Since they were hoping to tie up the Brazilian to a new deal.

Despite the fact that the former Stade Rennais winger has not decided to renew his contract with Yorkshire club so far. The Peacocks will be able to sell him during the summer transfer window.

Barcelona could steal Raphinha from Manchester United

Manchester United should be able to take advantage of this Raphinha availability to bolster its attacking options. A new signing can also be made available in the summer when Rashford and Martial leave the club.

According to the latest reports, Barcelona have agreed personal terms with the Leeds United attacker Raphinha. The 26-year-old has decided not to listen to offers from other clubs and has already told Xavi that he plans to sign. Raphinha also knows he will become a regular in the squad. Ousmane Dembele expected to leave on a free transfer.

If Leeds are relegated from the Premier League then Barcelona may be able to make a deal with their club, although setting a price is the tricky part. However, if they remain in the Championship then it may be easier for Barcelona. Fabrizio Romano reports that Raphinha has a €75 million release clause in his contract. Which will drops to €25m if Leeds go down.
