Finances have taken a big hit this season and the likelihood of a deal would involved a swap, as Doyle states.
The Brazilian has impressed massively during his debut season in the Premier League.
Raphinha hasso far this season, with some important and impressive goals along the way.
The forward operates predominantly as a right-winger, so would face some tough competition in the form of Mohamed Salah.
It would be difficult for any player to dislodge Salah from the starting XI let alone Raphinha.
That isn’t to say that the Brazilian couldn’t though, as he looks to be growing as a player each weeks at Leeds.
We shall see in the summer as to whether the club will make their interest in Raphinha known.
