David Norris: Leeds still want to sign Rodrigo de Paul, player is still interested in move
David Norris has insisted that Leeds United and Rodrigo De Paul both still want a summer move to happen between the two.
The Udinese midfielder has been a long-term target at Elland Road and has already admitted that he would switch to work under Marcelo Bielsa, liking that famous Square Ball tweet.
Marcelo Bielsa wants to sign a new midfielder this summer, although recent updates have left De Paul looking unlikely in West Yorkshire, something Norris disagrees with.
Speaking to Football Fan Cast, Norris has shared that the Whites may just have to throw cash at Udinese to complete the deal.
“I think Leeds are still interested and he’s still interested in Leeds, and it’s been ongoing for a long time now, and I don’t think anything has changed so I think there’s definitely something there,” he said.
“I don’t know if there’s an overvaluation in the player that is holding it up and it might be that if Leeds want him then they’re going to have to suck it up and pay what Udinese want.”
