The Brazilian has enjoyed a productive spell in the Premier League since joining the Yorkshire side for around £15m from Ligue 1 side Rennes in 2020.
However, despite netting 10 goals and registering three assists in 34 Premier League appearances for his side this season, Raphinha and Leeds could well suffer relegation to the Championship.
A potential drop out of the top flight, combined with his impressive form, has seen Raphinha linked with the likes of Barcelona in recent weeks, but The Telegraph are reporting that the Red Devils could pursue a move for the winger in the summer.
Man United's summer transfer plans look to be gathering pace with incoming permanent boss Erik ten Hag arriving in England in recent days to make a head start with preparations for the 2022-23 campaign.
Raphinha is said to be a name of interest when it comes to possible right winger targets, although the fierce rivalry between the two clubs could well scupper any potential move, with it also affecting any possible transfer of Leeds captain Kalvin Phillips to Old Trafford as well.
Leeds and Raphinha head into the final Premier League game of the season on Sunday requiring to better Burnley's result when they travel to Brentford, with Jesse Marsch's side currently inside the bottom three courtesy of a significantly inferior goal difference to the Clarets. body check tags ::
