Report: £55k-a-week Leeds star could find new offer 'too good to refuse'
Leeds United star, Gjanni Alioski, has an offer on the table from CSKA Moscow, according to a report from Turkish publication, Fanatik.
Alioski’s future remains unclear at Elland Road. Marcelo Bielsa has previously admitted he doesn’t know what will happen with the versatile Macedonian star.
Victor Orta has also previously conceded that Alioski has had offers come his way already.
Sportekz have claimed that Alioski is on around £55k-a-week at Leeds, although differing reports have claimed other amounts before.
The reports today suggest Alioski could be offered a long-term deal worth around £2.5m-a-year in Russia. That sort of money could tempt the left-footer away.
Alioski, 29, made 36 appearances for Leeds last season in the Premier League. Overall, he’s managed in excess of 170 appearances, scoring 22 goals along the way.
He is well-liked at Elland Road. Alioski, as well as being a good player on the field, is also known for being quite the character off the field as well.
Alioski to leave Leeds? CSKA are a big club to be fair
A move to Moscow would give Alioski the chance to compete in and for European football on a regular basis.
CSKA remain on the big forces in Russia, although they could only muster a sixth placed finish last term.
For Leeds, it’s a case of looking beyond Alioski. It doesn’t look like he’s staying for now, so they’ll need to consider their summer transfer dealings carefully.
His versatility is a bonus. But it is down that left-hand side where he excels in the White of Leeds. That is something, then, that Bielsa would need to replace.
All in all, it looks like Leeds fans might have seen the last of Alioski.
