Leeds United attacker Luis Sinisterra has been linked with a quick-fire move away from the club, with a journalist talking up a future switch to AC Milan.
The Lowdown: Sinisterra impressing for Leeds
The 23-year-old made the move from Feyenoord to Elland Road earlier this summer, in what was seen as a strong piece of business after Raphinha joined Barcelona.
Sinisterra has made a promising start to life at Leeds, scoring three goals in all competitions, including netting a key equaliser from distance in the 1-1 draw at home to Everton last month.
The Colombian’s Whites deal doesn’t expire until the summer of 2027 but that hasn’t stopped him from being linked with an early exit…
The Latest: Exit claim emerges
Speaking to Numero Diaz [via Sport Witness], Italian journalist Carlo Pellegatti talked up the idea of Sinsterra joining AC Milan as a replacement for Rafael Leao, who is wanted by major clubs throughout Europe:
“If unfortunately, and let’s hope not, Leao had to leave, a player I would like and who looks a lot like him is Sinisterra, today at Leeds.”
The Verdict: Would be a huge blow
While this is only one person’s opinion rather than a definitive transfer move, it is still worrying to see Sinisterra linked with leaving Leeds so quickly.
The hope is that the youngster is a Whites player for many years to come, filling the Raphinha-shaped void, but his head could swiftly be turned by a move to Milan, given their prestige as a club and the fact that they are playing Champions League football.
Sinisterra will hopefully see what an exciting project Leeds are, however – a club very much moving in the right direction under Jesse Marsch – and commit his long-term future to the club.
