Well-known Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague has given his take on speculation that Leeds United are interested in signing Rodrigo from Valencia.
According to Gianlucadimarzio.com, Leeds want to sign Spain international Rodrigo from La Liga outfit Valencia.
Head coach Marcelo Bielsa wants to wrap up the signing of the 29-year-old – who can play as a striker or as a winger – before the Whites’ opening Premier League game of the season against Liverpool on September 12.
Balague, who works for BBC Sport and is a well-known Spanish football expert, believes that Rodrigo would be a good signing for Leeds.
What a proposition (Valencia's) Rodrigo/Leeds as reported! The player would be more than happy to play for Bielsa and for a club like #LUFC. Fast, goalscorer, hard worker without the ball, Spanish international. Perfect for Bielsa if original interest is pursued pic.twitter.com/8eAiexiq50
