Leeds United are reportedly ‘confident’ of signing Rodrigo de Paul in the summer transfer window, in what could potentially be a club-record deal.
The Lowdown: Constant interest in De Paul
The Latest: Leeds ‘confident’ of deal happening
According to the Football Insider, there is growing belief from United sources that Leeds will get a deal for De Paul over the line, with Udinese demanding £37million for his services.
Should the Whites match that amount, it would make the Argentine the club’s most expensive signing in history, with Rodrigo (£27m) currently topping the pile.
The report does state that Udinese could be happy to let De Paul leave for £30million, however, acting as a boost for the Whites.
The Verdict: Ideal summer signing
Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t need to make major changes to his squad this summer, but a sprinkling of stardust is required to make Leeds even more formidable.
That’s more than any Leeds player in the Premier League in 2020/21, with Raphinha (2.1) having the most, highlighting the midfield creativity he could bring to the side.
