The BBC posted a video showing Victor Orta – Director of Football at Elland Road – talking about the Brazilian’s future.
Orta plays down suggestions that the 24-year-old could leave Elland Road, as two Premier League giants reportedly circle around the forward.
Aside from the goal involvements, Raphinha’s dazzling skills and flamboyancy have also caught the eye of Leeds fans, and neutrals too.
He is a typical South American attacker, who does things that excite supporters and make them fall in love with a player like this.
In that respect, fans will be happy to see Orta dismiss talk about a potential exit for Raphinha – he describes the speculation as ‘clickbait’ and nothing more.
It would be absolutely heartbreaking if the winger left Yorkshire before a packed Elland Road were able to witness his immense talents.
Let’s see how the Leeds fans reacted to the BBC’s tweet yesterday evening…
