Report: Issue as Legia target Leeds' Mateusz Bogusz
Legia Warsaw are struggling to agree a move for Mateusz Bogusz, with Polish outlet Legionisci remarkably claiming that the Leeds United starlet’s grandfather is ‘strongly’ against him joining the club.
Bogusz’s future looks set to be up in the air. There was a time when he looked to be one of the brightest talents in the Whites’ academy.
However, he left on loan last summer. And unfortunately, his time in Spain did not really see the Polish youngster prove a point to Marcelo Bielsa.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it appeared that he was destined for another move in this window.
Meczyki reported in April that Legia were in advanced talks with Leeds about a move. And it was claimed that Bogusz was keen to make the switch.
However, as things stand, Bogusz is still set to be back at Leeds next season.
And another report has now suggested why Legia are unlikely to be his next club.
According to Legionisci, Bogusz’s grandfather is ‘strongly’ against him joining the club.
And it is also claimed that Leeds are not convinced that the Polish top flight is the best place for Bogusz’s development.
Bogusz may need EFL loan to prove his potential to Leeds
Bogusz seems to be in danger of becoming something of a forgotten man at Leeds.
The under-23s have enjoyed an incredible year. And Mark Jackson’s side includes a number of players who are devastating in the final third.
It therefore, looks to be imperative that Bogusz catches the eye should he leave on loan once again this summer.
And that may be why a move to an EFL club could be a smart switch for the 19-year-old.
Firstly, prospects such as Alfie McCalmont and Robbie Gotts have shown that it can be much easier for a player to remain on the fans’ radar if they are playing in the lower leagues rather than abroad.
There is also an argument that it may be easier for Leeds to scale his achievements in the Championship or League One with where he needs to be to make the grade at Elland Road.
