Loads of Leeds fans have been getting their hopes up for a rather optimistic transfer move, after Manchester City’s Benjamin Mendy showed his support for Marcelo Bielsa.
Leeds fans have been having plenty of fun so far this season, and they’re certainly enjoying a tweet from Premier League winner Mendy.
The Frenchman spent most of last season injured, but has taken the Premier League by storm this season, racking up the assists flying down the left flank.
Leeds have their own chance creating machine at left back though, as fans are joking about signing Mendy to compete with Barry Douglas for that spot.
The Manchester City ace played under Bielsa at Marseille, and is clearly impressed by what he’s seen so far this season at Elland Road.
It’s fair to say the allure of playing for Bielsa at Elland Road will be monumental if his side can get promoted, although a move for Mendy may be a step too far.

I’d have you at Leeds but Barry Douglas has been very good

Look if Bazza and Tom Pearce got injured I wouldn’t say no but he would have to fight Berardi for the place

@Mattcartoon you may be needing a new left back as Mendy has his sights set on bigger and better things 😉
