Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are lining up a bid for Leeds United forward Raphinha.
There have been reports that the Brazilian wants to leave the club owing to their poor form this season that sees them placed 16th in the 20 team log. Despite the poor outing, Raphina has been the brightest lamp in the team where he has contributed with eight goals across 16 appearances this season.
As per a report from TNT Sports Brasil, citing exclusive information collected by Bruno Formiga, Raphinha is all set to make the move to Bundesliga heavyweights in January with the transfer set to cost the Germans a fee of around 50 million euro.
