Since making his £16.72 million move to Leeds from Stade Rennais – signing a four-year deal with the club reportedly worth £60k per week – Raphinha has highly impressed over his 16 Premier League appearances for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, scoring four goals and providing four assists, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 7.01/10 – ranking him as the club’s joint-third-best performer in the top flight.
The £16.2 million-rated 24-year-old was once again impressive in the Whites’ most recent match, as although Leeds lost the fixture against Everton 2-1, Raphinha bagged himself a goal, with his WhoScored match rating of 7.82 ranking him as Bielsa’s best player in the game.
After the Leeds United account shared a photo of the winger on Twitter, fans of the club flocked to have their say on Raphinha, with many heaping praise on the Brazilian.
Is Raphinha Leeds' signing of the season?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to the club’s post regarding Raphinha?
“Different gravy who’ll only get better with the more games he plays.”
“Honestly. Never ever ever ever let that little magic man leave. Best player we’ve had since Champions League days.”
“Absolute bargain. Some business from Victor and the board!”
“Best player in the league”
“Still can’t believe he plays for us! Loved him at Rennes what a player”
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Leeds United fans are infatuated with Raphinha, with some stating their belief that the 24-year-old is the best player their club have owned for as long as they can remember, while others claimed that the £16.72 million he cost was a bargain.
