Bayern Munich will not sell Michael Cuisance to Leeds United amid interest from the Premier League club in the midfielder, according to BILD.
French news outlet Foot Mercato has reported that Leeds are “strongly considering” a bid for the 21-year-old, who Marcelo Bielsa has requested that the Whites sign.
While Leeds are interested, German newspaper BILD has now reported that Bayern Munich will not sell Cuisance because they are low in numbers in the midfield after Thiago joined Liverpool.
Leeds seem intent on signing a new central midfielder before the transfer window closes.
Rodrigo De Paul has made it public that he wants to join the Whites from Udinese but the Italian club has been almost impossible to deal with.
Atalanta’s Ruslan Malinovskyi is also reported to be a target [Telegraph] with him being valued at £20million, which is less than what Udinese want for De Paul.
Cuisance now seems to be a part of Bayern Munich’s first team so signing him is bound to be difficult unless Leeds are submitting a massive offer.
However, the chance of that happening is likely to be low due to Leeds spending so much money on signing the likes of Helder Costa, Rodrigo, Robin Koch and Diego Llorente since winning promotion to the Premier League.
Cuisance could be someone who Leeds monitor over the coming season.
If he doesn’t get as much game-time as he would like at Bayern, there’s a chance he will become available in January or next summer.
