Leeds: Galatasaray place Rodrigo on transfer shortlist

Leeds: Galatasaray place Rodrigo on transfer shortlist -Leeds United News

Galatasaray have placed Leeds United forward Rodrigo Moreno on their transfer shortlist, according to journalist Onur Ozkan.

The Lowdown: Elland Road struggles

The Whites’ record signing hasn’t exactly starred in Yorkshire since joining two years ago, netting just 13 times in 61 appearances for the Whites and being the regular recipient of criticism.

The 31-year-old’s display against Aston Villa towards the end of the previous season was labelled ‘wretched’ by Beren Cross, who added that the Spaniard’s confidence was ‘drained’. The same reporter also criticised the forward for a series of ‘anonymous‘ displays in a Leeds shirt.

The striker still has two years remaining on his Elland Road contract, although it looks as if he is of interest elsewhere.

The Latest: Galatasaray interested in Rodrigo

Ozkan, who writes for Turkish media outlet Takvim, said on Twitter that Galatasaray have placed Rodrigo on their shortlist as an alternative attacking target.

The Istanbul club appear to be struggling to finalise a deal for Joao Pedro, so they could look to move for the Leeds marksman instead.

The Verdict: Time to go?

Raphinha appears to be edging closer to a Leeds exit with a dream move to Barcelona, and it seems as if there is a chance that Rodrigo could follow suit in terms of leaving Elland Road for a club on the continent.

You’d expect that plenty of Leeds supporters wouldn’t be as distraught if Rodrigo joined Raphinha in leaving due to the Spaniard’s struggles under both Marcelo Bielsa and Jesse Marsch.

Should Leeds sell Rodrigo?

Yes, 100%

Yes, 100%

No, we need him!

No, we need him!

He is the top earner at Leeds on £100,000 per week, so moving him on would free up a good chunk of the wage bill and could allow the Whites’ hierarchy to reinvest in another attacking player.
