De Paul breakthrough
Leeds United have agreed a deal with Udinese for Rodrigo de Paul after fighting off competition from Italy.

After weeks of negotiations, reports in Italy via La Repubblica claim that a deal is now agreed.

It was reported earlier this week that personal terms for De Paul had already been agreed with the midfielder happy to pen a five-year deal at Elland Road.

With a fee now agreed, a medical and announcement could come swiftly, especially if De Paul is to feature against Sheffield United in the Premier League on Sunday


After drawn-out negotiations, report on Sunday claim that Leeds have got their man after a breakthrough in talks with Udinese

I looked on the La Repubblica website earlier this evening and there is nothing on there to substantiate this. Not sure where Leeds Live got this info from.

I’ve always viewed Leeds Live as a vaguely reliable voice among the click-bait chatter Gessa, but both yourself and AJS have called that into question this evening.

Do they usually have accurate sources for their coverage, or is it the emperor’s new clothes?

Hard to tell from a distance if they’re worth reading or not.

They're a mixed bag. Beren and Joe are fantastic. But I think the rest are a bunch of interns posting cluck bait.

Notice it's dated Saturday

All A wanted De Paul. And he goes to Leeds from Bielsa ...
19 SEPTEMBER 2020
Cardomercato Combined with Juve, Lazio, Inter Milan and Rome, the Argentine from Udinese eventually succumbed to the lure of the Premier.

Another important protagonist of our league will leave Serie A to enrich the long list of top players in the Premier League. Rodrigo De Paul has been courted by almost all the most prestigious clubs in Italy, but in the end he will go to Leeds di Bielsa, a newly promoted but very ambitious team.

€25mil is cheap, we are trying to get De Paul for less than we wanted from Villa for KP last summer.

I hope we get De Paul.

The fans really want him it would be such a lift to get our number 1 target.

Also i find it odd reports are linking us with Erik Pulgar as a De Paul alternative because they arent similar players.

One is a dm/cm the other is more of a traditional number 10.

I think the title of the thread needs changing from RUMOUR to RUSE

Bet whatever their asking price was, they just upped it after the Cuisance news
