The Brazilian attacking midfielder has hit the ground running since moving to Elland Road from Rennes last summer, and the Premier League bigwigs are keeping tabs on him.
Raphinha has six goals and six assists in 26 league games for Leeds thus far, and he has been a huge miss for head coach Marcelo Bielsa’s side since getting injured.
His last appearance came in the Whites’ 2-1 win over Man City at the Etihad, and he missed their impressive draws against Liverpool and Man Utd.
While the 24-year-old was not able to prove himself against two of his suitors, it appears that he caught the eyes of Pep Guardiola and his coaching crew.
