Leeds United’s interest in Rodrigo De Paul has been well documented in recent weeks and the player himself has made it quite clear he would be open to a move.
The Argentine replied to the Leeds United fan account The Square Ball earlier this week, confirming his desire to make the move to West Yorkshire.
However, despite the ongoing reports and numerous apparent bids, it would seem that Leeds have not yet made an official approach for the Udinese creator.
That is according to Yorkshire Evening Post Leeds United lead Graham Smyth. Speaking on the Inside Elland Road Podcast, he made it clear that Leeds are yet to have made a bid for the player.
It is claimed that there have ‘been conversations’ between Leeds and Udinese but the price involved is preventing anything more advanced.
Mondo Udinese recently reported that Leeds have made an offer for the player but that it fell short of a €40 million price-tag (£36.7m). Of course, the bid seems unlikely given the YEP podcast but that does appear to be the asking price the Serie A side want for the player.
But for now, it seems like Leeds fans will simply have to be patient to see if the Whites can conclude a deal for this exciting talent.
