Barcelona, Chelsea and Arsenal are just a few of the teams interested in Raphinha.

A move to Barca is Raphinha’s favoured destination.

However, according to the chelsea-fc-raphinha-barcelona-arsenal-b1010919.html”Evening Standard, they run the risk of being leapfrogged by Chelsea, who already have a £55million bid accepted by Leeds.

Barca are yet to put a suitable offer on the table for the 25-year-old.

With the player’s future up in the air, Leeds boss Marsch says the club are still to decide whether Raphinha will travel on their pre-season tour of Australia.

Marsch said: “My guess is, I don’t know. We just have to wait and see what happens in the next couple of days.

“There’s urgency from his end, I think, to come up with a solution. We have to in the next couple of days see how things stand and see how we go.

“It hasn’t been an easy time for him this summer.


“Things have come and gone and there have been a lot of little discussions. Right now he’s our player.

“He showed up today and trained with everybody, he had such a good attitude.

Ronaldo will not travel with Man Utd for pre-season tour

Issued on: Modified:

London (AFP) – Cristiano Ronaldo will not travel with Manchester United for their pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia after the Portugal striker was given additional time off to deal with a family issue.

Ronaldo was absent on Monday when new United boss Erik ten Hag welcomed the club’s international players to Carrington for the start of pre-season training.

The forward told the club he was dealing with a family matter and remained absent on Thursday.

As a result, Ronaldo will not be part of the group flying to Bangkok on Friday and there is no estimate of when he will link up with United, who face Liverpool in Thailand on Tuesday before flying to Australia.

It emerged over the weekend that the 37-year-old had asked to leave Old Trafford after growing unhappy with thir poor form since his return last year.

United missed a Champions League place after finishing sixth in the Premier League.

However, United insist Ronaldo will be part of the squad this season amid reported interest from Chelsea and Napoli.

“Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of the Manchester United party scheduled to depart for our pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia on Friday. He has been granted additional time off to deal with a family issue,” a United spokesperson told the Manchester Evening News.

“Cristiano remains under contract with Manchester United for another season and he is not for sale.”

Ronaldo scored 24 goals in all competitions last season and was named the club’s Player of the Year, but United’s wait for a first trophy since 2017 dragged on.

Eriksen has made an incredible recovery since having a cardiac arrest on the pitch during a Euro 2020 match in June last year.

The star was forced to leave Inter Milan after having a defibrillator – which are not allowed in Italy – fitted in the weeks after his collapse.

But he returned to top-level football when fellow Dane Thomas Frank offered him a short-term deal at Brentford.

And he proved he can still make a huge impact in the Premier League as he helped the Bees secure top-flight survival.

That led to them offering him a permanent deal.

However, he has now agreed to join United instead and is said to have wanted £200,000 a week.

He is due to sign a contract, although the final figure is though to be worth less than that.

Eriksen’s move to Old Trafford is subject to a medical, which the BBC claim has still not been arranged.


Now that means it is touch-and-go whether he will join fellow new
