Leeds: Whites could be forced to sell Raphinha

Leeds: Whites could be forced to sell Raphinha -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

According to The Guardian, Leeds United’s finances may force Andrea Radrizzani to sell Raphinha, on whom they could make a profit of more than £50m.

The Lowdown: Raphinha linked with exit

Raphinha has impressed once again so far this campaign, scoring three goals in his opening seven Premier League matches (Transfermarkt).

As such, he has been linked with a move away from Elland Road, with Liverpool in particular believed to be interested in the Brazil international’s services (via Globo Esporte).

The Latest: Leeds may be forced to sell

As per this latest report, the Whites would not be in a position financially to turn down a big offer for the former Stade Rennais man.

It is also noted Leeds could make a £50m+ profit on a player they signed for £17m just last summer (BBC).

The Verdict: Reinvest

Raphinha has proven to be a hit under Marcelo Bielsa. All in all, he has managed nine goals and nine assists in 39 appearances for the Yorkshire outfit, but those stats only show part of his influence. Against Southampton for example, Leeds were outplayed as they lost 1-0 with a whimper, and they missed the 24-year-old’s creativity and directness.

Will Raphinha be at Leeds next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Still, a profit of £50m would see Leeds receive a fee of at least £67m, which is quite frankly huge money. In fact, that would see the club receive a 294 per cent profit that they could reinvest into other parts of the playing squad which need reinforcements. It remains to be seen where Raphinha ends up.
