Leeds: Journalist claims Raphinha may leave next summer

Leeds: Journalist claims Raphinha may leave next summer - Leeds United

Leeds United winger Raphinha will likely spend one more year at Elland Road and leave next summer, according to journalist Tom McDermott.

The Lowdown: Key man for Leeds

The Brazilian was a star performer for the Whites last season, catching the eye as soon as he arrived from Rennes, assisting nine times in the Premier League.

Raphinha was hailed as ‘unbelievable’ by Leeds United Fan Hub’s Ben Parker and others clearly agree – his performances have caught the eye of some huge clubs.

Liverpool have been constantly linked with a move for the 24-year-old in recent weeks and another key update has now been provided.

The Latest: Raphinha tipped for 2022 exit

Writing on Twitter, McDermott claimed that Raphinha ‘would do one more year’ at Leeds, before moving on to pastures new in 2022.

Liverpool are again mentioned as being the ‘most interested’, with the Reds more likely to go for him if either Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane leave.

The Verdict: Inevitable blow

Raphinha is vital to Leeds’ success moving forward, with the South American one of the most exciting wide players in the league last season.

In truth, there comes a point when it is extremely difficult to keep hold of such special talents, however, and getting one more year out of him could be the best Marcelo Bielsa can hope for.

The only positive is that if he improves even further this season, then Leeds would be able to receive a huge fee for his services, allowing them to strengthen their squad across several areas in the process.

In other news, one player has been tipped to replace Pablo Hernandez at Leeds this summer. Find out who it is here.
