Report details if Rangers star wants to join Leeds as Whites plot summer swoop

Leeds United are interested in signing Borna Barisic from Rangers this summer but the Croatia international has no desire to quit Ibrox, according to reports.

Football Insider reported earlier this week that after a recruitment meeting with Leeds chiefs, Marcelo Bielsa has set his sights on signing a new left-back this summer and Barisix, 27, is someone who has emerged on his radar.

However, an update by the Daily Record says that while Roma and AC Milan are also keen on the Croatian left-back, he is not interested in moving away from Rangers.

It is understood he signed a new deal in January that keeps him in Glasgow for the next four years.

Leeds could do with a new, out-and-out left-back this summer but with Barisic it appears they are barking up the wrong tree.

That might change if an offer is made for the former Osijek left-back, who scored two goals and supplied 14 assists in 40 appearances in the 2019/20 season.

Although he has more chance of winning silverware and playing in Europe at Ibrox, playing in the Premier League is something that a lot of players dream of and the money involved in a potential move down south has turned heads in Scotland in the past.

Scottish football fans might not like to hear that but it’s simply the way it is.

You can play for silverware and play in Europe in a lot of European leagues.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites are favourites to sign this striker.
