In the summer transfer window, Manchester United broke the bank to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and brought Ronaldo back to Old Trafford from Juventus.
The Red Devils have ample quality and depth in the attacking third, still, they are linked with other attackers and the name of Raphinha is in the lime light.
Lately, agent, Eduardo Uram, has stated that top clubs are interested in signing his client and the bigger the club, the bigger the amount would be required to get his signing done. He told UOL:
“I think today it’s worth more than 32 million euros (mentioned by Transfermarkt). What will determine the price is the level of the club that hires it. If it’s Manchester United , City, Liverpool, Chelsea, the price could reach around 60 million euros (£50.6million). What determines the price of a player is the market he hits”
Raphinha joined Leeds United last year and since then, he has been brilliant under the management of Marcelo Bielsa. Last season, in 26 league starts, he directly contributed in 15 goals for the Whites.
In the current campaign, so far, the 24-year-old has netted 3 goals in 7 PL appearances for the Elland Road outfit. Earlier this month, he made his debut for the senior national side and thus far, he has scored 2 goals and provided as many assists in 3 appearances.
In the latest WC qualification fixture, the speedy winger scored a brace to help Brazil earn all three points against rivals Uruguay.
In your view, should Man Utd splash £50.6million to secure signing of Raphinha?
