Barcelona have been linked with a move for Leeds United winger Raphinha.

Manchester United are also targeting the Brazilian who has been a star man for Leeds United, and helped Leeds secure safety in the Premier League.

Manchester United hero Paul Parker has backed United to beat Barcelona to the signing of the Brazilian star.

Speaking to BonusCodeBets, he said: “Now, he’s (Raphinha) not a centre-forward, he’s a wide player, he’s creative.

“He plays off the cuff. He improvises. So, I would say that he’s everything that Manchester United are about.

“When you look at Manchester United wide players, none of them have really done a lot. Only one player has really made an impact as a wide player, but he is inexperienced and he needs to be working with better quality players, more honest players, more professional senior pros, and that’s (Anthony) Elanga.

“Raphinha would be a very, very good signing for Man Utd – it makes sense.”
