The well-known football journalist and expert Guillem Balague said on his YouTube channel that Rodrigo could be open to joining Leeds United in the summer transfer window.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that the whites had taken their first step to sign Rodrigo.
] The Yorkshire Club asked Valencia about Rodrigo's availability. Leeds have received a lot of encouragement over the move, telling them that a deal could be struck.
Rodrigo is a versatile player who can play in all three positions in attacking midfield. Last season Rodrigo scored four goals and seven assists in the La Liga . He also scored two goals and provided two assists in the Champions League .
Balague has now released the latest update for Rodrigo. He has said talks about a possible transfer are at an early stage. Leeds has yet to reach a deal for Rodrigo that would cost Leeds approximately £ 30 million .
The encouraging part, however, is that the Spaniard wants to play in the Premier League and he likes the idea of playing for Leeds.
Balague said on his YouTube channel: “In Leeds, people make decisions, the CEO, the football director, the chairman and Bielsa, who think outside the box. I can imagine that Victor Orta came up with the idea “How about Rodrigo?”
. “I am sure that the wages Leeds could offer would match and improve those of Valencia. It makes perfect sense to Leeds – smart, hard worker who wants the collective to succeed. We have to keep an eye on it. We are still at an early stage in terms of club talks.
“Leeds must also reach an agreement with Rodrigo, which has not yet happened. I'm just going to say that Rodrigo likes the idea of Leeds and that's fascinating. “
He is a technically gifted player who would join the Leeds first team. However, Leeds has other goals as well, with Ryan Kent at the top of his transfer list .
