Rio Ferdinand has issued a Raphinha red flag warning to Liverpool as a result of the £60 million Mohamed Salah problem.
Leeds winger Raphinha has been linked with a move to Liverpool.
Despite Raphinha’s excellent Premier League form, Liverpool has been warned against signing him.
The 24-year-old is in high demand, but Leeds has so far been able to keep hold of their prized possession.
Raphinha has been linked with the Reds for quite some time.
Over the last 18 months, the winger has been one of the best in the Premier League.
Raphinha joined Leeds from Rennes for a bargain £16 million in the summer of 2020, but he is already rumored to be worth much more.
Both Liverpool and Manchester United have a long history of being linked.
United legend Rio Ferdinand, on the other hand, has questioned why Liverpool would want the player when they already have a plethora of attacking options.
Raphinha plays right wing for Leeds, and Mohamed Salah frequently plays there.
As a result, Ferdinand is unsure if the player will be a regular starter at Anfield.
“The only issue I see with someone like Raphinha going to Liverpool is where he’ll play? He’s not going to start,” the ex-England defender said on his YouTube channel, Five.
“So, not to begin with, £60 million is a huge fee.”
And I’m sure he’ll have more options as a player.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fantastic club that will be fighting to win on all fronts.
“Will I start a lot of games? If Salah stays and signs a new contract, it puts a damper on his ability to play.”
Deco, Raphinha’s agent, has reacted angrily to reports that his client could be sold for as little as £26.9 million.
“I believe he is worth over €32 million (£26.9 million) today.”
The level of the club that signs him will determine the price,” Deco told UOL.
“The price could reach around €60 million (£50.6 million) if it’s Manchester United, City, Liverpool, or Chelsea.”
The market that a player enters is what determines his price.”
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, has hinted that the Reds will not be active in the January transfer window.
Following his goal against Arsenal last weekend, the German revealed that back-up winger Takumi Minamino will see more playing time.
This will almost certainly rule out a.
