Leeds United handed Marcelo Bielsa contract boost

    Leeds United have been handed a major boost with Marcelo Bielsa said to be on the verge of agreeing a new contract at Elland Road.

    What’s the story?

    Reports in recent weeks have linked the Argentine with the vacant manager’s job at fellow Premier League side Spurs, and with Bielsa’s own deal at Leeds coming to an end this summer, there may have been fears he could leave.

    However, The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards has delivered a double boost to the club’s fans by revealing some crucial information from ongoings at Thorp Arch.

    Is Bielsa staying bigger than any new signing?





    First, he revealed on Twitter that Bielsa has no interest in the Spurs job or the thought of living in London, and then confirmed the biggest news of all by declaring that the 65-year-old is close to agreeing a new deal at Elland Road.

    He wrote: “Telegraph Sport understands there is an expectation behind the scenes at Elland Road that Bielsa has decided to stay and remains totally committed to the project he started back in 2018.

    “Although nothing has been signed at this stage, the Leeds hierarchy do not anticipate there being any problems agreeing terms when the paperwork is presented to him after the final game of the season.”

    Fans will be buzzing

    Make no mistake about it, news of Bielsa being “on the verge” of putting pen to paper on a new deal to stay at Elland Road will be music to the ears of Leeds fans.

    The Whites were brought back from their Championship slumber by the Argentine, who has established a real identity at the club with his methods and reconnected the fan-base with its players.

    And, after the news emerged of Bielsa’s likelihood of signing a new deal, Leeds fans were quick to voice their relief and joy on Twitter.

    Bielsa has very much become a talismanic figure at Elland Road, and it’s difficult to imagine a future without him being at the helm, crouched down in the dugout and barking out instructions in wild animation.

    Bielsa has become Leeds, and the club have become the image of the Argentine.

    Meanwhile, Marcelo Bielsa may be set for an exciting summer transfer window…
