Leeds: Whites now want Rabbi Matondo

Leeds: Whites now want Rabbi Matondo -Leeds United News

Leeds United are now looking to sign FC Schalke forward Rabbi Matondo, according to Bild.

The Lowdown: Matondo profiled

Matondo is a Wales international who can play anywhere across the front three. The 21-year-old left Manchester City for Schalke back in 2019 in a deal worth £8.1m and has made 32 appearances for the German side.

He spent last season on loan in Belgium with Cercle Brugge and now has 13 senior career goals to his name. A return to the UK appears to be a real possibility this summer, though, with Elland Road a potential destination alongside fellow countrymen Dan James and Tyler Roberts.

The Latest: Leeds links

German outlet Bild shared a transfer update regarding Matondo on Tuesday evening. They claimed that Leeds are one of three Premier League clubs keen on the attacker after Cercle Brugge refused to make a loan move permanent.

Matondo would cost in the region of €4m (£3.4m), with Schalke open to a quick transfer to give them some ‘financial leeway’.

The Verdict: Worth a punt?

Pep Guardiola previously hailed Matondo when he was coming through at the Etihad, so a low-risk move could be a shrewd one by Leeds chiefs due to his age, versatility and impressive plaudits.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

Matondo is actually represented by the same agency as six Leeds players, so should the Whites agree to fork out £3.4m, a transfer could perhaps be wrapped up in quick time, which would suit Schalke.

Victor Orta is closing in on a third signing of the summer in Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca, and it looks as if Matondo is on the radar to possibly become the fourth.
