Man Utd make first move for Leeds winger Raphinha

Manchester United have opened talks with the camp of Leeds United winger Raphinha.

UOL says United have made an enquiry about a potential deal to sign the winger.

The report adds that Raphinha's agent, former Barcelona and Chelsea midfielder Deco, is set to have a meeting with Leeds' director of football Victor Orta in March about the player's future.

Raphinha is under contract with Leeds until 2024.

Raphinha has had an excellent start to life at Leeds United, netting five goals and providing five assists in the Premier League so far this season. The 24-year-old signed from French club Rennes over the summer in a £17m deal and he has been key to Leeds' success.
