'Pain', 'knew it was gonna happen': Some fans resign themselves to Leeds-linked £15m attacking ace leaving

Leeds United are reportedly eyeing Matheus Pereira, a player who looks set to change clubs this summer.

The Express claimed in May that Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites were monitoring the West Brom attacking ace.

However, Leeds weren’t the only club linked – the likes of Leicester and RB Leipzig were also apparently eyeing Pereira.

He’d fit in well at Elland Road, as he can feature on the flanks or as a No. 10, and is Premier League proven.

Could Centre-Forwards Become Extinct?

A June report from TEAMtalk claimed Leeds – or other suitors – could potentially snap Pereira up for as little as £15m.

The 25-year-old was one of few bright sparks for West Brom last season, shining despite relegation from the Premier League.

“Not a secret”

Now, new Baggies boss Valerien Ismael has made it clear he expects Pereira to leave this summer.

“It’s not a secret that Sam Johnstone and Matheus Pereira can maybe leave the club,” the Express & Star quotes him as saying.

“It’s my expectation that they (will) leave.”

And while some West Brom fans are pleased to hear such an honest reply, others are nonetheless upset about the prospect of their departure.
