Manchester United need to improve their attacking department this summer and once again, Brazilian international, Raphinha is on their radar.

According to Spanish source, Nacional, Man Utd have arrived in the Catalan capital to secure the signing of Raphinha.

The 26-year-old was a key member of Xavi Hernandez’s squad that won the La Liga title in the last campaign.

However, the news outlet claim, now, he is not considered an essential player and the Blaugrana look to offload him to fund key signings this summer.

Barca president, Joan Laporta, is willing to sell the South American if he receives an offer of 60 million euros (£51m).

Man Utd are convinced and Erik ten Hag has asked the board to do whatever it takes to complete the signing of Raphinha.

At Old Trafford, wingers like Sancho and Antony cost a lot in the last two transfer windows and the duo have failed to live up the expectations.

Therefore, the quality and the depth of the wide attacking positions must be improved and a versatile player like Raphinha, who can feature at either flank, would be a top addition.

Last season, the Selecao attacker directly contributed in 22 goals (10 goals and 12 assists) in all competitions for the Catalan giants.

He is a proven PL talent. Should Man Utd agree a deal worth £51m to bring him back to England?
