Leeds United are in “advanced talks” over a move for Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Cuisance, according to L’Equipe.
And the player has raised eyebrows among Leeds fans after he liked a tweet from Leeds keeper Illan Meslier after the 1-0 win against Sheffield United on Sunday.
Meslier tweeted, “Very important win today and first clean sheet, so happy for my team.”
Cuisance liked the tweet and it’s still his last interaction with his social media account.
Athletic journalist Phil Hay said that “all sides” were open to a deal that would see the Bayern Munich midfielder move to Leeds.
Liking the tweet definitely suggests that he’s got Leeds on his mind but before people get too excited, there is another reason why Cuisance would like a Meslier tweet.
Cuisance and Meslier have been teammates for the France Under-20 side.
However, the timing of the ‘like’ is certainly significant, too.
And, with his relationship with Meslier, it’s likely now that Cuisance knows all about life at Leeds under Marcelo Bielsa.
Meslier has had a brilliant start to his Leeds career, winning the gloves from the vastly experienced Kiko Casilla and now wowing in the Premier League.
We can’t imagine that he will have anything but good things to say and that could have aided Cuisance’s decision to agree personal terms with the club.
We think he could be a very significant signing.
Bundesliga expert Ronan Murphy said that “Leeds are set to sign” Cuisance and said it was an odd decision by Bayern Munich. Phil Hay said he was a “big talent”.

Hopefully, the next tweet we see from Cuisance is one hailing his move to Elland Road.
