Leeds United fans just can’t agree over Ronaldo Vieira’s likely exit

Much of the talk surrounding Leeds United right now has, naturally, focused around potential incomings at Elland Road. Indeed, with Marcelo Bielsa at the helm in West Yorkshire, the Whites had been expected to undergo a major rebuild to ensure the Argentine can get his trademark footballing message across. 

Well, while there have been incomings and the like, perhaps the most shocking transfer business Leeds have been involved in is the likely departure of academy graduate Ronaldo Vieira. The England U21 international, a mainstay in the first-team in recent months, looks like heading off to Serie A side Sampdoria in a shock switch, one that has appeared pretty much out of nowhere.

The 20-year-old is a popular figure amongst the Elland Road faithful though Samp’s reported offer of £7.7m looks to have tempted the Yorkshire giants into selling. Indeed, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post’s Phil Hay, the club thought it was simply too good an offer to turn down, despite his standing in the squad.

With that in mind, here’s a look at some of the reaction to the deal.
