A report in Italy has claimed that Rennes attacker Raphinha will join Leeds United and sign a five year contract worth £28k-per-week.
With the transfer window now coming to an end, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa continues to be linked with a whole host of players.
The latest player to be linked with a move to Elland Road is Raphinha with a deal in the region of £21m said to have been agreed.
The Sun followed up those claims with a report saying that the young forward would arrive in Yorkshire on Monday to complete a medical.
With a deadline day move now expected, Tuttomercatoweb have reported the finer details of the youngster’s claimed contract with Leeds.
That report goes on to say that a five-year deal has been agreed with a contract worth £28,000 per week on the table, meaning the Brazilian forward would earn just under £1.5m a year.
Raphinha scored five goals and registered three assists in 22 appearances in Ligue 1 last season, helping them to reach the Champions League for the first time.
This seems to be close to a done deal for Leeds, and judging by the attacker’s aforementioned statistics, it could prove to be a very good one.
Of course, things can change at the drop of a hat as Bielsa knows of late, but Raphinha looks like he will be putting a Leeds shirt soon.
Do you think Raphinha will be a good signing for Leeds? Let us know in the comments section below…
