Leeds United winger Raphinha has no desire to join Liverpool amid the ongoing interest from Barcelona, Sport claims.
The Brazilian has been a long-term target for the Reds, and they have been fancied to make an approach over the summer.
However, their chances of signing him are slim due to Barcelona’s pursuit. Raphinha has urged his agent to negotiate with them.
The Catalan giants are currently planning a bid of around €30m, but it is widely expected to be rejected by the Whites.
The Yorkshire outfit are not keen on losing Raphinha on the cheap, and will want his €75m release clause to be paid in full.
The 25-year-old has been Leeds‘ best-performing attacker since his arrival in 2020. He has bagged 15 goals and 12 assists from 59 games.
Raphinha has previously said that Leeds have been hugely pivotal to his international career, and does not plan to leave them.
Hence, he appears unlikely to look for an exit without the club’s wishes.
