Manchester United

are preparing to compete with

's Winger, who have been with the club for less than five months, have been heavily linked with the two major Premier League clubs and will be on their summer shopping list. He joined Leeds from Rennes in October for £17 million, scoring five goals and five assists in 20 games for his team.

The Brazilian star has a 4-year contract with Leeds United, but with his brilliant performances in the Premier League, he has attracted the attention of clubs. He started his football career in Brazil, then played three seasons at Sporting Lisbon with Bruno Fernandes. In 2019, he became the most expensive signing in Rennes history and helped the club advance to the Champions League.

Leeds are currently 10th in the table with him, beating Southampton 3-0 in their final game. In that game, the Raphinha scored their team's third goal from a free kick.

It remains to be seen where the two Premier League giants will compete for the Brazilian star in the summer.
