Manchester United has moved in with an offer to recruit Raphinha from Leeds United, according to sources in the Spanish media.
Deco, a former Chelsea winger, has received many phone calls from the Red Devils inquiring about his condition and readiness to transfer to Old Trafford, according to a story covered by Sport today (news image given below).
The former Samba star has made it obvious that the Brazilian winger, who is being pursued by a number of Premier League clubs, will be joining Barcelona.
Despite receiving substantial offers, Deco has assured Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany that his client will wait for the La Liga heavyweights to rectify their financial situation.
Man United have presented a proposal that is beyond Barca’s reach, and they have offered hefty terms that the Catalan club cannot afford in order to get Raphinha, according to a well-known Spanish media site.
For the time being, his representative has been able to hold off the Red Devils and other Premier League sides. He has been persistent in his efforts to bring the 25-year-old, who is worth £55.7 million, to the Nou Camp.
Under Marcelo Bielsa’s guidance, the 9-cap international scored 6 goals and provided 8 assists in the league for Leeds in 2020-21. In the Premier League last season, he scored 11 goals and added three assists.
Man United have opted to sell attacking players such as Mata and Lingard; however, Martial’s future is uncertain, and Greenwood is unavailable. As a result, the offensive needs to be upgraded.
Raphinha is capable of playing in a variety of attacking positions and has established his worth in the Premier League, but Leeds United may be hesitant to sell their prized asset to bitter rivals Manchester United.
