RAPHINHA SHOULD SNUB MAN UTD FOR LIVERPOOL
Brazilian legend Rivaldo believes compatriot Raphinha has the ability to play for a ‘bigger club’ than Leeds.
The 24-year-old arrived at Elland Road from Rennes last year for a fee in the region of £17million.
And he was superb during his first campaign under Marcelo Bielsa, netting eight times and assisting 11 in 38 appearances.
He has already scored three goals in seven Premier League games this season, picking up where he left off before the summer despite Leeds’ dip in form.
The playmaker also netted his first international goals for Brazil earlier this month, scoring twice against Uruguay in a 4-1 victory.
But Rivaldo, who played for some of the biggest clubs in the world such as Barcelona and AC Milan, feels Raphinha should now be looking towards bigger and better things at club level.
Speaking to Betfair, he said: “Raphinha performed well on his debut for Brazil, but he was already shining in the Premier League with Leeds United and there are rumours of interest from Liverpool.
“If he were to make the move, he may not be a regular starter, but I’m sure it would be a big step in his career since it would allow him to compete for titles and play in the Champions League which could be crucial for more call-ups into the Brazilian national team.”
