Leeds United: Fans react as Raphinha linked with Liverpool move


Many Leeds United fans have reacted poorly after hearing star man Raphinha be linked with a move to Liverpool.

According to an article in the Mirror, with Reds’ sporting director Michael Edwards set to leave the club at the end of the season, his last act should be to tempt Leeds’ Brazilian star over to Anfield.

The story claimed it would be a ‘dream move’ for Raphinha who would slot nicely into the team, especially with Mohamed Salah’s contractual situation still in the balance.

Will Raphinha end up at Liverpool?





Details of the story were shared on Facebook by Leeds Insider and it’s safe to say they didn’t receive the warmest of responses from the club’s faithful.

Here’s what these Leeds fans said

Evidently, these fans don’t want this move to happen. You can hardly blame them either. This season, the winger has been in great form, scoring five goals in 10 Premier League games.

This was a low point in Leeds United's history, but how many points did they get in the 2003/04 campaign?

His performances have seen him rewarded with a chance to shine at international level with Brazil too. He’s certainly taken that opportunity and now has two goals and two assists in just four appearances for his nation.

Fortunately for Leeds, Raphinha’s contract runs until 2024. So if any transfer bid was to come in, it would likely have to be very high to successfully force any sale.
