Leeds United have reportedly agreed personal terms with Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Cuisance, as they look to bring the talented youngster to Elland Road this summer.
According to the Guardian, the Whites have agreed terms with the Frenchman that would see him sign a five-year deal.
The report explains that Marcelo Bielsa’s term have made a bid worth £18million to try prize him away from German champions Bayern, who were also crowned European champions last month.
It is understood that Bayern are hoping to receive as much as £27million for him, but a deal could be negotiated in the next few days for his move to England.
Cuisance is a ball-playing central midfielder that only joined Bayern in 2019 and he’s done enough to catch the eye of Bielsa.
The 21-year-old has made 11 first-team appearances or the Bundesliga champions, including on the opening day of the new league season against FC Schalke.
He is a highly-rated playmaker that has had a taste of first-team football with Bayern, but is unknown to English audiences.
It looks like Leeds are not done yet in a busy transfer market and they are showing huge intent to survive in the top-flight following their return, as they’ve already made some high-profile signings to bolster their squad.
It’s obvious that Bielsa has an amazing pulling power to bring quality players to Yorkshire and they could be on the verge of adding a Bayern talent to their ranks, who would strengthen the options in the centre of the park.
Leeds fans won’t be getting too carried away and the main priority is to stay in the top division, but neutrals are excited about their prospects after two wins from their opening three league games and may feel they could achieve a top-1o finish.
