Leeds United forward Rodrigo is reportedly ‘not comfortable’ at the club and could look to move on at the end of the season.
The Whites snapped up the Spaniard last August, bringing him in for a club-record fee of £26million from Valencia.
Big things were expected of Rodrigo as soon as he made the switch to Elland Road, having shone in La Liga and also scored eight goals in 25 caps for Spain.
Unfortunately, the 30-year-old has been a disappointment to date, netting just three times and registering one assist in 22 appearances.
Rodrigo unhappy at Leeds
It is added that he doesn’t feel like a ‘relevant’ player under Marcel Bielsa and it looks set to cost him a place in Spain’s Euro 2020 squad. A return to his homeland is mooted to be on the cards this summer.
Transfer Tavern take
There is no denying that Rodrigo has been somewhat of a letdown at Leeds, but injuries have clearly played a part, not allowing him to find any sort of rhythm.
In an ideal world, he will find full fitness next season and thrive for Bielsa’s men, but it appears as though he is eyeing up a return to Spain.
