Leeds United have perfect reason to reignite Brahim Diaz interest with Samuel Saiz gone

Leeds United were linked with several Manchester City youngsters in the summer on potential loan deals. Marcelo Bielsa’s close relationship with Pep Guardiola had The Sun suggesting that the likes of Angus Gunn, Lukas Nmecha and Tosin Adarabioyo were all potential targets.

Brahim Diaz was also mentioned.

The young Spaniard decided he did not want a loan move and, in the end, the only City loanee that arrived at Leeds was Jack Harrison.

However, Leeds now have the perfect reason to go back in for Diaz.

Samuel Saiz has just left the club. As reported by The Mirror, he has joined Getafe on loan with a view to a permanent £6 million deal in the summer.

With Izzy Brown struggling for fitness and Lewis Baker out of form, it leaves Leeds short of a playmaker.

Diaz could be the perfect addition. The Spaniard showed in the EFL Cup tie with Leicester CIty last night that he is more than ready for regular first-team football and he has that something special that makes him a diamond youngster.

Leeds would be getting the perfect replacement for Saiz. Meanwhile, Diaz would get valuable first-team football in a style suited to Guardiola’s taste.

Seems like a no-brainer really.
