The most up-to-date Leeds United transfer rumours for Monday, June 20.
Raphinha would join a Premier League club.
Raphinha, a winger for the Whites, would like to join a Premier League rival and is only holding out for Barcelona because of his agency, according to Sport.
According to the Spanish newspaper, Deco is persuading Raphinha to wait for the long-awaited transfer from Barcelona, but Raphinha himself “would have already signed for Liverpool or Chelsea” if he had his choice.
Barcelona has shown a lot of interest in the 25-year-old, but their financial troubles are proving a stumbling block as Leeds stick to their demands. Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Chelsea are all interested in signing the Brazilian.
Raphinha’s fears about a Leeds United transfer raid are starting to show in Barcelona.
Deco is said to have reached a verbal agreement with Barca administrators Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany, forcing him to turn down any offers from other clubs while Barca negotiates a sum.
For Man City’s star, the club will face stiff competition in the Premier League.
According to the Mail on Sunday, Leeds are expected to face heavy competition from Southampton for Man City teenager James McAtee, but have the upper hand thanks to Kalvin Phillips.
The Whites are interested in the 19-year-old, according to their print edition of June 19, and he might be used as leverage in City’s quest to sign Phillips.
The Premier League champions are set to make an approach for the 26-year-old once his agent switch is completed, and have considered using McAtee or Romeo Lavia as makeweights in a deal.
McAtee made his Premier League debut against Everton in November 2021, and in 23 appearances in the Premier League 2, he scored 18 goals and added seven assists.
Phil Jones has piqued the curiosity of the Whites.
According to Marca, Leeds is one of several Premier League clubs interested in signing Manchester United defender Phil Jones.
Jones has only made six Premier League appearances in the last three years and has failed to impress since joining United in 2011.
The former England international is expected to quit Manchester United this summer as new manager Erik Ten Hag attempts to trim the fat from an aging roster.
Southampton and Fulham are also said to be interested in signing the defender.
