Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch has spoken out on Raphinha as he is being linked with a move to Barcelona.

Raphinha has been in an impressive form during this season with having made 28 appearances in which he has scored 9 goals and provided 3 assists.

“He was incredible in the 45-minute test match we had,” said Marsch during a press conference ahead of Leeds clash with Southampton on Saturday, April 2.

“A massive talent and my challenge is, despite all of the talk outside, is to have the relationship where we can focus on his development in helping the team while he is here. Haven’t had a word with him about Deco or Barcelona.

“It should be out there because is fantastic. Just want him to become the player I know he can be. Everyone here wants to enjoys the football he can play and of course we want him to stay as long as possible. Fantastic player and very good person.”
