Moreover, Raphinha is a player who has been in the transfer columns.

The Brazilian winger has been linked with Liverpool, although Leeds are adamant that they will not sell him this summer.

The Mirror reported in March interest from Liverpool and Manchester United in the 24-year-old Brazilian.

However, just days later, Leeds Director of Football Victor Orta dismissed suggestions that the club will sell the winger this summer.
