Leeds United fans have been reacting to the latest news surrounding potential new manager Marcelo Bielsa, published by Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Following the sacking of Paul Heckingbottom 11 days ago, Leeds have been looking for a big name to fill their vacant manager spot.
Marcelo Bielsa has been the favourite and Leeds fans are excited about the prospect of the former Argentina and Athletic Bilbao manager joining the club.
However the drawn-out negotiations have been frustrating fans, but the latest update from Phil Hay will put them at ease.
Hay said that money is not an issue in the contract talks, but they are still negotiating plans, infrastructure and how the club will be run.
The fact that Bielsa is happy with the money offered is a good sign as it is a likely sign that a deal will take place and the Argentine is keen.
Leeds fans have been responding to the update with everyone in agreement that this is positive news for the club in their pursuit of a world-class manager.
Absolutely love this. Give him the whole club and let him do anything he wants. pic.twitter.com/g7oFIn18C7

This feels like a very positive step. One of the criticisms of The Project from last season was the scope of Orta’s remit and the recruitment. If Bielsa’s demanding that be changed I’m right behind him

Reassuring that he and the club are putting this much effort and time into the nuts and bolts ?

It’s so refreshing having a potential manager come in who knows what he wants & how he wants to run it. Sounds like Orta will have to take a back seat. #lufc
