Man Utd enter race for Leeds United attacker?

Manchester United are reportedly plotting a summer move for Leeds United winger Raphinha.

The Red Devils signed Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for €80m last summer, but he has endured a tough debut campaign.

He was signed to bolster the right-wing position, but the England star has been more effective from the left side of the attack.

Hence, the club could make another signing, and The Telegraph claims that Raphinha has now emerged as a prime target.

Raphinha has been one of the leading performers for Leeds, bagging 16 goals and 12 assists from 64 Premier League games.

He has been an undisputed starter when available, but could be sold on the cheap if the Whites are relegated this weekend.

He has a relegation release clause of just €25 million, and United appear alert over the possibility of landing his services.

However, a deal will be difficult due to the frosty relationship between the sides. Leeds have no plans of selling players to United.

Kalvin Phillips has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but he is unlikely to cross the divide to anger the Leeds faithful.
