Raphinha has struggled during his time at Barca, but previously looked an exciting talent in his time in the Premier League with Leeds United, so it perhaps makes sense that Man Utd are now keen on giving him a lifeline with a return to English football.

United certainly have issues in attack at the moment, with another Brazilian winger, Antony, proving a major disappointment since moving to Old Trafford.

Raphinha is a similar style of player, providing a left-footed option from the right-hand side, and one imagines he could come in and do a better job than his fellow countryman, whose future at the club may be in doubt.
