Report: Shocking Raphinha price tag revealed, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Barcelona among interested clubs
According to a report, Brazilian winger and Liverpool target Raphinha could be allowed to leave on the cheap this summer if Leeds United are relegated from the Premier League.
The 25-year-old has been a shining light in what has been a troubled season for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as they sit just three points above the drop zone with 13 games remaining.
He has also impressed since breaking into the national team, earning him even more admirers from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have all been linked with the 25-year-old in recent months, but it looked like it would take upwards of £50m to persuade Leeds to part ways with their star.
The reporter suggests he could be sold for as little as £15-20million if the Elland Road club end up in the Championship.
This is exactly the type of deal Liverpool would normally be interested in, as evidenced by the signings of Andy Robertson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Xherdan Shaqiri from the relegated clubs.
There was always likely to be a battle for Raphinha’s signature this summer, but if Leeds go down and he is available at a bargain price, even more clubs are likely to join the race.
