Leeds United won’t entertain the prospect of selling Raphinha amid the transfer interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.
The 24-year-old made the move to Elland Road from Rennes last summer and he has impressed with five goals and five assists from 21 league games.
His progress has been closely watched by scouts of United and Liverpool and it has been reported that the latter may make a serious offer.
It is added that they see him as a huge part of their future plans and don’t face the pressure to sell with no release clause on his contract.
Raphinha still has more than three years remaining in his deal with the west Yorkshire outfit, who are 11th on the table with 35 points.
Leeds have comfortably stayed clear of relegation on their return to the Premier League and the main challenge will be to replicate the feat next term.
