Striker wanted by Leeds last year wins title in his first season at his new club
After Leeds United reached the Premier League last summer, the Whites turned their attention to strengthening their ranks.
Leeds set their sights on Canadian striking sensation Jonathan David, then playing for Belgian club Gent.
Indeed, Gent chairman Ivan De Witte told De Zondag that Leeds made a “much better” proposal than Lille, his eventual destination.
That said, David hasn’t made a bad choice in the slightest.
His maiden season at Lille has culminated in him winning the league.
David scored 13 goals and registered three assists in the league, helping Christophe Galtier’s side win the title.
Paris Saint-Germain won seven titles between 2012 and 2020.
However, in wake of Monaco’s success in 2017, Lille have now wrestled the trophy from PSG.
It’s the fourth title in their history and first since 2010-11.
Fair play to David, whose decision to join Lille certainly reaped dividends, winning the first title of his career.
It’s a shame that Leeds couldn’t get their hands on him, but it didn’t matter much at the end of the day.
Patrick Bamford has been sensational and Rodrigo has finished the season strongly.
