Man United latest side to ‘express interest’ in Leeds’ Raphinha
A recent report from Brazil has credited Manchester United with an interest in Leeds man, Raphinha.
Raphinha joined Leeds United during the delayed summer transfer window last year.
The Yorkshire outfit are believed to have paid Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais around £16m to bring the Brazilian to Elland Road.
And the former Sporting man has since gone on to enjoy a fine start to life with Leeds.
In 22 Premier League outings thus far, the winger has been able to provide five goals and five assists for the Peacocks, with his latest effort this sensational strike against Southampton:

Such fine form has seemingly seen the attacker pique the interest of some of Europe’s top clubs.
Premier League champions Liverpool were credited with an interest in the Brazilian towards the beginning of February.
Now, though, as mentioned above, yet another Premier League giant looks to be taking an interest in the former Rennais standout.
The report from UOL, which also mentions Liverpool’s interest, does not suggest a potential transfer sum any interested parties would have to stump up to land the winger.
However, it does claim that one of Raphinha’s best friends is Bruno Fernandes, with who he is said to maintain almost daily contact.
The pair, of course, used to ply their trade together in Portugal with Sporting, and if the relationship is indeed as close as UOL claim, United will no doubt be hoping Fernandes can put in a good word if the Red Devils do indeed look to pursue the Leeds star.
