Liverpool urged to snub Man United target

Leeds attacker Raphinha has been linked with both Manchester United and Liverpool.

The 24-year old attacker has been impressive for Leeds this season racking up five goals and five goals in his debut season.

Former Reds winger Steve McManaman believes the Brazilian winger should link up with a ‘big six club’ and Liverpool should consider signing the Leeds star in the summer.

‘Raphinha has been linked with Liverpool this week and I think he’s an exceptional player,’ McManaman told

‘He’s only just entered the Premier League so the fact that he’s hit the ground running is a big plus. He has a lot of skill and a lot of talent.

‘I don’t want to disrespect Leeds but of course he could play for a big six club. He could easily fit in a team like that. I just think Liverpool need a player who can change the way they play a bit.

‘I was watching Bayern Munich against Borussia Dortmund the other day. They had Leroy Sane on one side, Kingsley Coman on the other side, then they brought Serge Gnabry on and they’ve got Douglas Costa.

‘I think someone like Raphinha who can play a bit wide and is someone a bit different to what they’ve got, I think that’s the most important,’ he added.

‘They need to be able to change their style and how they play and a Raphinha could easily fit into that mould.

‘It’s something that Liverpool have to have a really good think about. The transfer committee really have to put their heads together.

‘But if he leaves, it’ll be for a hell of a lot of money!’
