Leeds United fans here in the Tavern are desperate for their side to appoint a manager that can get the job done, having witnessed Paul Heckingbottom’s poor efforts in the last campaign.
The Whites will have their eyes set firmly on promotion to the Premier League next season, but this will all depend on whether they appoint the right man this summer. Although, it looks as if Leeds are making great strides to appointing a new manager, as according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, negotiations between Leeds United and Marcelo Bielsa are set to extend over the weekend with Leeds holding out for a deal.
Indeed, it’s understood that United are prepared to wait on the conclusion of discussions with Bielsa despite initially aiming to have a first-team boss in place this week, with the club at an advanced stage of negotiations over his contract and demands.
And, the 62-year-old is thought to have been analysing United’s current squad with a view to highlighting changes needed before the start of next season and has also spoken about potential signings in the event that he and United shake hands on a deal early next week.
However, Bielsa is yet to formally accept the post, and it’s believed that he and his representatives will review all aspects of United’s proposal in the next 48 hours before reaching a decision.
Leeds United are making great strides towards promotion next season as talks are ongoing with arguably one of the world’s best managers. And, having seen how Wolves fared last season after bringing in a proven manager that dropped down to the Championship to create a legacy, perhaps the Whites will be enjoying promotion this time next year as they look to be going down a similar route.
