Leeds: Joe Wainman reacts to Fabrizio Romano’s update on Raphinha

Leeds: Joe Wainman reacts to Fabrizio Romano’s update on Raphinha -Leeds United News

Leeds United YouTuber Joe Wainman has been reacting to a Twitter update from Fabrizio Romano regarding Raphinha.

The Lowdown: Romano’s update on Raphinha

The Brazil international has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in recent months, with his agent Deco reaching a ‘full agreement’ with the Catalan giants over a five-year deal.

However, agreeing on a fee with the Whites for the 25-year-old has proven tricky for the La Liga club, especially due to their current financial issues.

Romano stated on Sunday morning that ‘Leeds want €55m’ (£47.2m) for their star man and won’t change their price tag. That is a different figure from what was previously reported by Phil Hay, who stated earlier this month that it would likely take a bid between £60m and £70m to get Raphinha out of Elland Road.

The Latest: Wainman left fuming

Wainman, who is known for his JustJoeFootballShow on YouTube, was one of many who replied to Romano’s update regarding Raphinha on Twitter.

He voiced his frustration with the journalist’s update by saying: ‘This €55m tag best be a joke, man.’

The Verdict: He’s right

The Whites hold all the cards when it comes to a potential exit for Raphinha after he played a major role in keeping the club in the Premier League. There is no release clause in his deal as a result, with the 25-year-old still having two years remaining on his Leeds contract.

Will Raphinha leave Leeds this summer?

Yes, 100%

No, he'll stay!

A number of Premier League clubs are now also keen on the winger, so selling for anything under £50m – as Romano has suggested – would be a disappointment, and Wainman is right to feel aggrieved.

In an ideal world, if Raphinha were to depart, multiple clubs would end up in a bidding war which would see the Whites receive a fee in the region of £60m-£70m, as Hay previously mentioned.
