On October 3rd, Marca reported Leeds United have initiated contact with Levante for José Campaña. 

Later that day, El Desmarque reported the Whites had tabled a ‘firm offer’ of €15m plus €3m in potential bonus payments. 

The Premier League club tabling an offer for the 27-year-old has been backed up by today’s edition of AS.

Levante have rejected Leeds’ €15m proposal for the midfielder and they want at least €25m to consider letting the player leave, more so after he was selected by Luis Enrique for Spain’s October international fixtures. 

It’s claimed the La Liga side’s refusal saw Leeds move for Bayern Munich’s Michaël Cuisance, but the deal for the Frenchman has now collapsed.

The newspaper suggests there’s possibility Leeds will ‘reactivate’ the operation to sign Campaña in the last hours of the transfer window, by tabling an offer higher than €15m.

Online, AS also explains Levante have turned down the ‘formal offer’ made by Marcelo Bielsa’s side, and add the ‘operation is still possible’.

This suggests the La Liga side are willing to let Campaña leave on certain conditions, which is if Leeds or any other interested clubs meet the €25m fee requested by Levante. 

Whether Leeds will meet those demands remains to be seen.
