Leeds United are in talks with Raphinha over a new contract, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

Raphinha, a key player for Leeds, has been linked with Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

However, the Whites do not want to sell the £17 million winger (The Athletic).

The Yorkshire Evening Post have reported that talks between Leeds and Raphinha are going on over a new deal.

The 25-year-old Brazil international is under contract at Leeds until the summer of 2024.

Could Leeds United lose Raphinha?

In our opinion, there is a chance that Leeds may have to sell Raphinha in the summer of 2022.

There are two big reasons for this.

The first and obvious one is that Raphinha will attract interest from bigger clubs who compete for major honours.

Raphinha has scored 14 goals in 46 Premier League appearances for Leeds so far in his career.

The second reason why Leeds could lose Raphinha is their league position.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side could get relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

We do not think that Raphinha will want to play in the second tier of English football.

Even if Leeds do survive, would Raphinha want to continue to play for a team who are not going to challenge for Europe for another season, especially given the interest he has from other clubs?
