This is part of a regular series from our panel of Leeds United Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Elland Road and Thorp Arch.
Leeds United are close to smashing their transfer record ahead of their return to the Premier League.
The Whites are closing in on a move for Valencia forward Rodrigo, with the fee said to be at £27million with add ons, according to David Anderson.
ONDA Deportivo have shared footage of the Spanish international completing his medical on Wednesday, claiming he was then set to travel to Leeds the same day.
Victor Orta has been in front of the Spanish media all day and has had a look of delight etched across his face in each interview.
Leeds’ director of football claimed his side will be bringing in a “world-class” player, before admitting it only took Rodrigo one minute to agree to the switch.
Marcelo Bielsa will clearly have had his say on the move, and it appears as though the striker will fit in perfectly at Elland Road.
He may not have been prolific in front of goal last season in La Liga, but his stats, as shown by LUFCDATA, suit Bielsa’s style very well.
We asked our esteemed panel of MOT Leeds News Super Fans how they felt about the record-breaking deal, and they simply couldn’t hide their excitement.
Here’s what they said…
While a couple are remaining calm until they see the evidence, it is clear to see that there are massive levels of excitement around West Yorkshire.
There is a sense that this could be a turning point, and see Leeds start to attract some of Europe’s better players as they look to establish themselves as a Premier League force once again.
