Leeds blow as Raphinha yet to train ahead of Manchester United clash

Leeds blow as Raphinha yet to train ahead of Manchester United clash

Raphinha impressing with Leeds

Raphinha joined Leeds United during the delayed summer transfer window last year.

The Yorkshire outfit are believed to have paid Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais around £16m to bring the Brazilian to Elland Road.

And the former Sporting man has since gone on to enjoy a fine start to life with Leeds.

In 26 Premier League outings thus far, the winger has been able to provide six goals and six assists.

Marcelo Bielsa provides Raphinha update ahead of Manchester United clash

So, when Leeds play host to bitter rivals Manchester United this weekend, they will no doubt want the Brazilian in from the off.

He did not score against Manchester City, but Raphinha still caused the Sky Blues all sorts of problems and was key to the Peacocks seeing off the soon-to-be Premier League champions.

But the 24-year-old is understood to have picked up a knock in that game and that was cited as a reason why he did not feature against Liverpool last week.

Now, when speaking to the media on Friday, Marcelo Bielsa has provided another update on Raphinha.

The news, though, doesn’t appear to be good, with the Argentine conforming that Raphinha has not recovered enough to be able to train yet:

“Raphinha, we’re controlling his evolution on a daily basis, up until now he’s not recovered sufficiently to be able to train.”
