Report: Local sources confirm Leeds United are braced for a Raphinha bid from Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are lining up a bid for Leeds United winger Raphinha as they look to reinforce their attacking department, according to a report.

Tribal Football cite ‘local sources’ in claiming that the Rossoneri are weighing up an offer for the Brazil international having monitored his progress since he was playing for Ligue 1 side Rennes. Given that we know how much Milan scout the French market for young talent, this is perhaps not a surprise.

The report also adds though that Premier League side Liverpool and Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are also reportedly in the running for the 24-year-old, who has scored an impressive 5 goals in 10 starts for the Yorkshire club.

Milan may need a player for the right side of the attack if Samu Castillejo is sold during the summer, and someone who offers a different skillset to Belgium international Alexis Saelemaekers, who has struggled for end product so far this season.

    He is out of our league for now. Only a strong desire by the player can make such a move come through. Milan can’t out-muscle the competitors in the running for his signature. Very soon we will also have to fight off competition for Faivre too, because all we do is waste time scouting for other clubs to buy.

    No point in going for this guy.
    Get Sanches as a truly standout player, regardless if Kessie stays.
    Real progress is in Europe – we need players that win games. Bennacer is almost that player, but not enough – and i think he may already have reached his potential.
    Sanches has excellent dribbling, can play on the right or as ACM and is hella versatile. We have loads of midfielders, but only Tonali has truly a potential to take us far in Europe. Pobega is weaker, but we could either keep him as backup in the future or sell for 20+m.
    Just let him stay in torino and use that to convince them to give us Belotti. Switching clubs too frequently is not good for a young player
