Leeds manager responds to Raphinha Barcelona rumours

The Brazilian winger has been linked to Barcelona in recent weeks.

Raphinha who signed a four-year deal with Leeds back in October 2020 is currently on Barcelona’s radar for their summer targets.

New Leeds manager Jesse Marsch who replaced Marcelo Bielsa earlier this year claims he wants to get the best out of Raphinha and his future is not yet decided beyond the current season.

The 25-year old winger has been crucial for the Whites this season and has attracted attention from some of the major clubs in the process.

Marsch said: “He is a massive talent and my challenge, despite all of the talk outside, is to have the relationship where we can focus on his development in helping the team while he is here.

“I haven’t had a word with him about Deco or Barcelona. It (Barca’s interest) should be out there because he is fantastic.

“I just want him to become the player I know he can be. Everyone here wants to enjoy the football he can play and of course, we want him to stay as long as possible. He’s a fantastic player and a very good person.”
