Neymar wants fellow Brazilian Raphinha at Paris Saint-Germain

Rangers and Frankfurt

Neymar has reportedly urged Paris Saint-Germain to sign Leeds United forward Raphinha as per the report in TEAMtalk

The 24-years-old joined the Premier League side last summer from Stade Rennais for €17 million. The Brazilian has settled down in the new surroundings like a fish in the water, scoring six goals and nine assists in 30 league appearances last term. He has started the new campaign brilliantly as well, scoring three goals in eight Premier League outings. 

According to the report, Neymar has asked Paris Saint-Germain to sign Raphinha after being impressed by the winger’s talent during the international break last month. The report further claims that Liverpool are also eyeing a move for the 24-years-old and it will not be easy to land the Leeds man at Parc de Prince next summer. 

The Ligue 1 giants are looking for reinforcements for next summer and as per the report, the Brazilian could potentially be in line to replace Kylian Mbappe in the squad if the Frenchman decides to leave for free at the end of this season. 

Paris Saint-Germain want Leeds ace Raphinha after Neymar recommendation:

Rafinha has showcased his talent in the Premier League and signing the Brazilian would be a great acquisition for the French giants. However, remaining at the English club might be the right decision for the winger at this stage of his career. 

PSG are stacked with talents in the forward department. And the 24-years-old might struggle to find regular first-team action at the French capital. So, remaining at Elland Road and developing his career under Marcelo Bielsa will be the better choice for the Brazilian. 

Meanwhile, PSG has started the new campaign brilliantly. As they are currently sitting at the top of Ligue 1 with 28 points in 11 games. The Parisians are also at the top of the group in the Champions League with seven points in three games.
