Deco Raphinha

Former Chelsea legend and agent of Raphinha, Deco revealed that Liverpool likes the Brazilian winger. Raphinha has been a revelation since joining the Premier League. His performances in the league have earned him a call-up to the Brazilian national side for World Cup qualifying. Deco believes that Raphinha will go on to play for one of the best clubs in the world but also reiterated that he has three years of his contract at Leeds and is happy for the moment.

“There are certainly many clubs interested in him,” Raphinha agent Deco said. “Liverpool do like him and there were some approaches, but nothing official. Leeds wanted to keep him for another season. Raphinha is happy at Leeds, but there will certainly come a time when he wants to take a step up in his career and move forward. He has three years left on his contract, but there’s nothing in it that states how long he must stay for or that prevents transfers.”

“Leeds are aware of that and will want to sell him for a big sum, while Raphinha will end up progressing in his career,” he added. “There’s a market for Raphinha and Leeds has very high expectations. There’s never been a rush in terms of the project. He’s ambitious to play at a higher level, despite Leeds being in the Premier League, but it’s not the right time (to talk about that) and that’s not what he’s focused on. Things will take their course naturally.”
