Leeds United bid for Raphinha accepted

According to Quest-France, Leeds United’s bid for Raphinha has been accepted by Rennes. The Premier League club will pay the French side an initial transfer fee of €17 million (£15.4 million) and €6 million (£5.4 million) in add-ons. Leeds have been on the hunt for a winger in the summer transfer window, and it seems that they have found one in Raphinha.

According to WhoScored, Raphinha has made four starts and one substitute appearance in Ligue 1 for Rennes so far this season, providing two assists in the process. During the 2019-20 campaign, the 23-year-old winger made 20 starts and two substitute appearances in the league for Rennes, scoring five goals and providing three assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

The Brazilian is a very good winger who at the age of 23 has the potential to further improve. Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa is known for getting the best out of young players, and Raphinha could prove to be a smart signing for the Whites.
