Manchester United, Arsenal ‘join race for Raphinha’

Manchester United and Arsenal reportedly become the latest clubs to join the race to sign Leeds United winger Raphinha.

Leeds United winger Raphinha has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Manchester United.

While Raphinha’s second campaign at Elland Road was not as productive as his first, the Brazilian’s stock continued to rise with Barcelona known to be tracking his progress.

The 25-year-old scored a crucial penalty against Brentford on the final day of the season to help Leeds remain in the Premier League, ensuring that his release clause stayed at £64m in the process.

Despite the valuation, Barcelona remain clear favourites to sign the playmaker, but it appears that they will face competition from several English teams.

Journalist Gianluigi Longari claims that United and Arsenal are contemplating whether to involve themselves in the race for Raphinha, despite not being able to offer him Champions League football.
