Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa is interested in making a summer move for Coventry City defender Michael Rose according to Football Insider.
Sky Blues boss Mark Robins will have a busy summer ahead as he prepares to build a squad capable of staying in the Championship.
Coventry secured automatic promotion from League One to England’s second flight after the English Football League opted to end the season via a points-per-game system.
With Robins set to be busy preparing his side for the 2020/2021 season, he could be about to lose one of his key players as Leeds show interest.
24-year-old defender Rose has impressed this term and it is now being heavily reported that Argentine tactician Bielsa is keen on taking him to Elland Road.
Rose’s potential arrival in Yorkshire could see him act as a replacement for Ben White, who is set to return to parent club Brighton this summer.
Leeds, who are on the verge of gaining promotion to the Premier League, sitting top of the Championship as things stand, will be looking to bolster their defensive options this summer.
It is a massive compliment to Coventry and Rose that such a highly-rated manager in Bielsa is showing interest in his services.
Coventry will undoubtedly be keen to keep hold of the defender, who has been a good performer for Robins side this term with 31 League One appearances to his name and 13 clean sheets (Transfermarkt). But a move to Leeds would be extremely hard for the £293,000-valued ace to turn down.
Do you think Coventry can keep hold of Rose past the summer? Let us know in the comments section below…
