New Leeds United signing Rodrigo conducted his first interview with the English press, direct from international duty on Friday – and it was liked by a name on the lips of every Whites fan at the moment. 

Leeds fans are desperate for any news on Rodrigo de Paul, with their club firmly in the hunt for the Udinese midfielder’s signature.

De Paul put the cat among the pigeons when he liked the Rodrigo post that sported big Leeds journalists such as Adam Pope and Graham Smyth.

And plenty of them think it’s a big hint that De Paul could be signing for Leeds ahead of the Premier League season starting.

In his post, Rodrigo said, “Happy to catch up with the English media. I promise I’ll improve my English.”

This was liked by Rodrigo De Paul – and it didn’t go unnoticed.

It might be a stretch to say that this is clear evidence that De Paul is on his way to Elland Road.

But it’s definitely a good sign. If De Paul has a decision to make (and Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Leeds are still in talks over a move last night), then seeing Rodrigo talk about Leeds in such a good light can only be a good thing.

De Paul might well fancy hooking up with his namesake in the Premier League. We hope so – and so do these Leeds fans…
