Leeds United transfer rumours: Latest Raphinha reports as Whites handed boost in pursuit of Real Madrid and MK Dons players
Leeds United travel to face West Ham United at the London Stadium in the Premier League next Monday.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United will be looking to bounce back against David Moyes’ Hammers having tasted defeat against Dean Smith’s Aston Villa on Saturday.
In terms of the summer months, however, Illan Meslier’s agent Xavier Fleury has spoken about the goalkeeper’s future at Elland Road.
“For sure there are some big clubs that are interested and following Illan, but right now he is in Leeds," said Fleury.
“He is starting, and that is the bottom line – the most we can ask for. He loves the club, and he has settled in really well.
“I think if Leeds keep the sporting director, the coach, and the players keep improving year after year like they are doing, I think the president (Andrea Radrizzani) could be right and Leeds could be in the Champions League quickly.
“If Leeds are in the Champions League, I think it would be more beautiful for Illan to challenge for trophies at a club like Leeds as opposed to winning leagues at clubs like Real Madrid, Juventus, or Bayern.
“Football is all about emotion; you can say okay I’ll play for Real Madrid, Bayern, or Juventus, but it’s about achieving something that is not expected, and to do that at Leeds with Bielsa would be amazing, and there is no way to think about leaving.”
And there is still plenty of transfer talk swirling around the internet this morning...
