Before Bielsa’s arrival, Leeds United was struggling in Championship mid-table, now Bielsa’s side has been transformed into an exciting side in the Premier League this season.
Marcelo Bielsa led Leeds to the Premier League last season. A part of their success was their high-energy passing game, a style that for sure would suit a fleet-footed midfielder like Riqui Puig.
The Spaniard who is out of Koeman’s favor is wanted by Bielsa, as reported by Diaro As.
It’s reported that Leeds have formally looked into signing the Catalan starlet in the winter transfer market.
The competition for Leeds would be tough, with several European clubs sharing the interest in bringing the highly-rated youngster. However, Riqui Puig would be able to work alongside Rodrigo Moreno, Pablo Hernandez, Kiko Casilla, and Diego Llorente, other Spanish players in Bielsa’s Leeds.
