Leeds fans think they are signing Daniel James

Marcelo Bielsa shocked the footballing world on Wednesday night as – while Leeds fans were surely on tenterhooks that his surprise press conference amidst ‘Spygate’ may culminate in his resignation – he revealed that he had been extensively scouting every team in the Championship and sending staff to training grounds to get information on their opponents all season long.

The Argentine decided to combat his critics by showing them more examples of the exact thing they were criticising him for with a brilliant PowerPoint presentation and the depth that he went into caused some to even label him a genius.

However, for all his tactical nous, the 63-year-old may have accidentally given away his January transfer plans in the process – one eagle-eyed viewer spotted a folder that seemed to be a report of sorts on Swansea’s Daniel James.

The 21-year-old winger has been linked with a move to Elland Road but a deal has yet to be agree, however that hasn’t stopped Whites fans from getting excited after Bielsa’s presser.
