Exclusive: Ex-Leeds ace weighs in on star’s potential exit

Former Leeds United ace David Norris insists that Raphinha will want to stay at the club this summer.

The winger enjoyed a superb season in the Premier League in 2020/21.

He made a total of 30 appearances in the top-flight, under the management of Marcelo Bielsa, and scored six goals, while laying on nine assists.

Will Raphinha be at Leeds next season?





Raphinha only moved to Leeds last summer from Rennes but a report from journalist Gianluigi Longari claims that there is interest from Liverpool, Manchester United, and Manchester City in snaffling him away from Elland Road.

The Brazilian has a lengthy contract at the club until 2024, and is valued at £27m by Transfermarkt, but he would surely be a hugely expensive acquisition for any of the three clubs if they did formalise their interest.

Norris insists that he fits in well with his team-mates and thinks that he would be more than happy to stay with Leeds this summer.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “He wants to do well. The lads say he’s very good in the changing room, he’s a good lad, he seems very happy there, mixes with the players well, not just one to keep himself to himself, has the banter and joins in.

“So he seems very settled and that’ll play a big part in it as well.”
