Leeds United now locked in talks with Club Brugge as they ready new bid for Charles De Ketelaere

Leeds United are now locked in talks with Club Brugge over a potential deal to sign Charles De Ketelaere, according to the Daily Mail.

The newspaper has reported in their print edition [27 June, pg. 63], that the two clubs are in dialogue as the Whites prepare a bid for the Belgian superstar.

It is shared that Leeds could bid up to £26million as they prepare to test the water over a potential blockbuster transfer in the coming weeks.

Simon Jones shared his daily Window Watch in the Daily Mail today [27 June], and shared the latest coming from Elland Road as they look for more reinforcements.

“Leeds are in talks with Bruges over a £26million move for forward Charles De Ketelaere,” he wrote.

Get it done.

The hard part of any potential deal for De Ketelaere may not be persuading Club Brugges to part with their star man, with good money being put on the table.

Problems could arise when trying to persuade the actual player to make the move.

De Ketelaere and his entourage are said to have made contact with Leeds already to inform them that they don’t particularly fancy a move to Elland Road, so something will need to be done about that [Alexandre Braeckman].

Anything can happen in football, and when the money of a Premier League cub is put on the table, a player can quickly look at that and change their minds immediately.

If anyone can work their magic in talks, it would be Victor Orta, and Andrea Radrizzani will be hoping that his right-hand man can make all of the difference here.

Leeds are going all-in this transfer window, and this would be a huge addition – fingers crossed.
