Jesse Marsch should sell Leeds United forward Helder Costa

The transfer window is shaping up nicely for Leeds United, with the club already securing one big summer signing. 

Jesse Marsch needs to make a bold decision on Helder Costa, and chances are high that he will be sold in the summer. 

According to The Daily Mail on 4 June, the Angola winger has failed out of favour at Leeds, and he could be heading for the exit door. 

The 28-year-old, who was signed by former boss Marcelo Bielsa, is set to return to the Yorkshire club in the summer after spending on loan last season at Valencia. 

He started the campaign strongly but his form faded away in the second half, as he failed to score in 27 appearances.

There are suggestions that it could be a clean slate for him at Leeds under Marsch, and that he could be given another chance to cement his position in the side. 

Marsch has a different approach to the summer window, compared to what it was under Bielsa. 

Last season, Marsch understood that the club severely lack depth and quality on the bench and that new additions are required. 

Bielsa believed in having a small group of players, and the Argentine ignored the importance of a strong squad. 

From that perspective, it probably makes sense to keep Costa at the club as he has two more years on his present deal. 

But, his performances in recent seasons have been horrible, and there’s no evidence to show that he can still be a regular member, let alone a lethal weapon. 

Put it simply, his career is on the wane, and it’s high time the club sell him and get rid of his wages. 

In Leeds United news, an under-the-radar court case involving the transfer of a Leeds player has reached its conclusion with the final payout revealed.
