Many Leeds United fans have been talking about the latest news involving Raphinha that emerged on social media.

SportItalia journalist Gianluigi Longari has recently tweeted about the situation of Leeds star Raphinha, stating that it is now confirmed that Liverpool are leading the race to sign the Brazilian this summer. United and Manchester City are also interested in the player but it won’t be a simple deal as Leeds want to keep the player.

This comes some months after the same journalist had claimed that United and Liverpool are two of the interested parties and they’ll be in a battle for him in the summer.

Longari’s latest update about Raphinha drew the attention of many Leeds fans, who were left raging about it.

Leeds' all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

Raphinha arrived at Leeds only around a year ago and going by Expected Assists, he was their most creative player in the 2020/21 campaign. He also contributed to 0.57 goals per 90 minutes for the side, which shows his value to the side (as per FBRef).
Considering those numbers, it would make sense for Leeds to keep the 23-year-old at the club as his value will only increase and the Whites could make a bigger profit in the future.
