Report shares Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa's transfer budget this summer
Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa is set to be given £45 million to spend this summer, according to a report from the Mail on Sunday (2/8; page 151).
The Whites are gearing up for their return to the Premier League. They have already completed permanent deals for Helder Costa and Illan Meslier.
Meanwhile, the Yorkshire Evening Post has suggested that Jack Harrison will return on another loan with the option to buy still in place ahead of next summer.
In terms of further additions, it appears that Bielsa will have the funds to make a couple of marquee additions.
The Mail on Sunday (2/8; page 151) reports that the club will provide a budget of £45 million for this window.
TBR View: Bielsa may not be underwhelmed with funds available
Some Leeds fans may be a little worried about the reported budget. There may be some concerns about what the club can do with £45 million, especially as it would be a surprise to see any big-money exits that lead to a further bolstering of the kitty.
But Bielsa has not made wholesale changes during his time at Elland Road. So perhaps he may not be too disappointed with the funds reportedly available.
Leeds made no permanent additions to their first-team squad last summer – although they committed to buying Costa permanently when signing the winger on loan. They have therefore, proved that they can be shrewd in the market.
So it should perhaps come as little surprise to the supporters if the club manage to make their budget go a long way once again this summer.
