Mateusz Klich may leave Leeds United in the summer as he will be looking to play as many games as possible in what’s likely to be his final World Cup.

Poland have qualified for Qatar 2022 and have every chance of making it into the knockout rounds.

Klich is expected to be picked for the side, but if he does not feature regularly in the 2022/23 season, the chances of him going on the plan will reduce considerably.

Jesse Marsch seems to be keen on playing a 4-2-3-1 for the upcoming campaign and sees Klich as an attacking midfielder.

The American already has Brenden Aaronson and Rodrigo ahead of the Pole in the pecking order as can be seen in pre-season while the two new signings in midfield Marc Roca and Tyler Adams are expected to be regular starters.

At 32, Klich is not getting any younger either and does not have that engine that saw Marcelo Bielsa become such a keen admirer of his.

The Poland international is such an important dressing room presence that it would be hard to just part ways with him.

However, if he tells the club that he’s keen on leaving, they’re unlikely to stand in his way and an exit could very well be on the cards this summer.

It remains to be seen if Marsch will look to sit down and convince Klich or if the Pole has already made up his mind one way or another.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites have submitted a fresh bid to sign their first-choice target this summer as a Champions League club has pulled out of the deal.
