Marcelo Bielsa will likely have been frustrated with the lack of transfer business so far this summer at Elland Road.
Of all the managers to want a lot of business done in the Championship this season, Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa was surely top of the list. The manager is known for his ultra-meticulous approach to management, watching video footage of games tirelessly to identify weaknesses in his sides.

It is an attacking style of play, which puts a lot of importance of energy. The Argentine will be demanding high levels of fitness from his squad this season.
