Good Morning. It's Wednesday 29th July, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Leeds lining up £15m to bring Foyth to Elland Road
The Sun are reporting that Leeds are lining up a £15m offer to bring Spurs centre back Juan Foyth to Elland Road. The 22 year old Argentinian was signed by the North London Club in the Summer of 2017 for a fee of 8£m from South American outfit Estudiantes. Foyth has fallen out of favour with new Tottenham Manager Jose Mourinho , having not featured for the first team since late December last year. Foyth has made 32 appearances for Spurs in all competitions, netting once. Boca Juniors are also interested in signing him, but he insisted last month that he did not want to return to Argentina.
Top football agent believes the future is bright for the Whites
Super agent Kia Joorabchian has been talking to TalkSport about Leeds Utd, and their return to the big time after 16 years of exile. The 49 year old businessman believes the Whites future is bright under the leadership of Andrea Radrizzani and Marcelo Bielsa. Joorabchian discussed the possibility of bringing Uragian International Edinson Cavani to West Yorkshire following his release from Paris Saint-Germain.
In addition to his quality, Cavani could contribute with his physicality and adapt here, but I've never talked about him with the coach. Having said that, we've certainly thought about him and we'll see, given he's still available on a free transfer."
The Leeds owner has very good links in Italy and with a couple of the guys that work closely with Cavani. If anyone was to pull something like that off, they could. Bielsa is so highly regarded, he was one of the teachers of Tevez. For many, many years I followed him and Leeds fans have a lot to look forward to with those guys at the helm.
We are all aware of the tight bond Radrizzani and Nasser Al Khelaifi have. You have to wonder whether Leeds will benefit from their relationship now the Whites are back in the Premiership?
