Raphinha’s sparkling form for Leeds United in his first season at the club has seen Liverpool become reportedly interested in signing the Brazilian winger – but Whites fans have responded to their star player’s latest comments, stating he is happy.
Raphinha, 24, joined Leeds on deadline day after helping French club Rennes qualify for the Champions League. His stunning form for the Ligue 1 side was immediately replicated at Leeds – having a hand in 10 goals in his 21 Premier League outings.
Not only has his goals and assists caught the eye. His typically-Brazilian flair, along with his tricks, have seen him become a favourite at Elland Road. Gary Cahill was turned inside out by Raphinha with one of the most-skilful moments of the season.
