A large number of Leeds United fans have flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the latest update to emerge from Phil Hay on Raphinha’s contract. 

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the future of the Brazilian winger, with reports over the Christmas period linking him to Bayern Munich.

Will Raphinha leave in the summer?





However, on Wednesday morning, The Athletic correspondent claimed that the Whites are growing ‘increasingly confident’ of tying the 24-year-old down to a new deal, as he shared a report on his performance against West Ham United last weekend.

And with Liverpool said to be long-term admirers of the Leeds ace, these fans took to Twitter to share their relief at Hay’s latest update.

What did these Leeds fans have to say?

“What a week”

“what better news to start the day”
“News you like to wake up to”
“Lovely start to the day”
“It gets better and better”
“That would be the best news if we keep Raphinha on a new contract! Best signing in 20 years”
“Keep the good news coming Philip”

It is no surprise these fans are delighted to hear Raphinha may be edging closer to extending his stay in West Yorkshire after the impressive season he has had so far in the Premier League.

In the absence of Patrick Bamford, Raphinha has stepped up and provided Marcelo Bielsa’s side with eight goals and two assists in 18 appearances.

However, with just over two years now remaining on his current deal, it could also be seen as a potential method from the Whites to make sure they do not lose Raphinha in the summer for a cut price.
