Forgotten Leeds United man Rafa Mujica could seal a permanent move to Las Palmas this summer, with the Spanish club keen on completing a deal.
The Lowdown: No Leeds future for Mujica
Mujica has had a nomadic career in recent years, having loan spells at the likes of Extremadura, Oviedo and Las Palmas. It is quite clear that Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t see a long-term future for the 22-year-old at Leeds, with the Argentine surely showing trust in him by now if that wasn’t the case – the Spaniard hasn’t even made a matchday squad for a competitive Whites fixture.
That is despite him impressing some of the Elland Road faithful during a pre-season fixture in 2019, only for it to prove a false dawn.
Mujica is currently at Las Palmas, where he has only managed four Segunda Division appearances this season and not made a single start.
The Latest: Las Palmas keen on permanent signing
Las Palmas have an option to buy and it appears as though they are willing to take Leeds up on the offer.
The Verdict: Time to move on
In makes perfect sense for Mujica to leave Leeds at the end of the season in order to settle at a club and begin the next chapter of his career. Bouncing from club to club is not benefiting anyone, in truth, and with his Leeds deal expiring in the summer, a new contract is highly unlikely to come his way.
The Whites are now at a point where they should be aiming for the the European places next season, in which case they need a higher calibre of player than Mujica.
In other news, Leeds are reportedly battling some heavyweight clubs for the signing of one player. Find out who it is here.
