At the beginning of the week it was reported in Spain that Rafa Mujica has signed an agreement with Leeds United and will be joining the Yorkshire club soon.
The 20 year old’s contract with Barcelona expires in the summer, and renewal talks haven’t progressed well.
Then it all went quiet in Spain, until, on Thursday morning, Marca reported the player has offers from England. They didn’t name any clubs, and explained that talks with Barcelona had stalled.
Mujica is concerned he won’t get enough minutes next season, with 19 year old Abel Ruiz set to be preferred for Barca B, and the club also wanting to give game time to 18 year old Alejandro Marqués.
Now Leeds interest has been backed up.
Diario de Mallorca report their local club are keen, and they name Leeds, Sporting Gijon and Deportivo La Coruna as competition. It’s claimed the named clubs are all keen, but there’s certainly nothing about Mujica having already signed with anyone.
El Desmarque say they’ve further been able to confirm the claims, and they believe Leeds have the ‘greater economic potential’ to get a deal done.
