And according TeamTalkPSG have joined Liverpool in the race for Raphinha, and the French giants’ interest in the Leeds player stems from Neymar’s admiration for the player.
Raphinha and Neymar have teamed up on international service with Brazil, and the Leeds winger made a very good impression in the most recent round of matches earlier this month.
The 24-year-old’s debut with the Selecao saw him record two assists in a 3-1 comeback win over Venezuela, before scoring a double in his first start for Brazil in a 4-1 win over Uruguay at the end of that month.
Raphinha has started this season brilliantly with five goals in 11 games for the club and the national team.
And according to Deco, Leeds plans to retain Raphinha for at least another season, but remained coy about how long the 24-year-old would end up staying at Elland Road.
“There are certainly a lot of clubs interested in him,” Deco told Brazilian publication Globo earlier this month.
“Liverpool like it and there were some approaches, but nothing official. Leeds wanted to keep it one more season.

“Raphinha is happy in Leeds, but there will certainly come a time when she wants to step forward in her career and move on.
“He has three years left on his contract, but there is nothing in it stating how long he should stay or preventing transfers.”
Raphinha moved to Leeds in October 2020 in a £ 17 million move from French club Rennes and has scored nine goals in 38 games for the Whites.
