Gianluigi Longari has claimed on Twitter that Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City all are interested in signing Raphinha from Leeds United in the summer transfer window. The well-known and well-respected journalist has said that Liverpool are leading the race for the 24-year-old Brazilian.
However, according to the report, it is not going to be easy for Liverpool, United and City to sign Raphinha. That’s because Leeds are keen on keeping hold of the winger they signed from Rennes last summer. The Brazilian made 26 starts and four substitute appearances in the Premier League for Leeds this past season, scoring six goals and providing nine assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
Confirmed. Liverpool lead the race for #Raphinha but also Manchester United and Manchester City are following the winger. Not a simple deal cause Leeds want to keep him. #LFC #LUFC #MUFC #MCFC @tvdellosport https://t.co/Pj7ziC5apy

Leeds have just finished a wonderful season in the Premier League, and the club are unlikely to be willing to sell any of their best players. However, money talks. Moreover, Liverpool, United and City all can offer the winger Champions League football and the prospect of winning major trophies.
