Once a Leeds United player before his adventure in Italy, Ronaldo Vieira is on the verge of returning to England.
It’s Sheffield United, freshly relegated back down to the Championship, who are keen on signing him from Sampdoria following his season on loan at Hellas Verona, which he mostly spent on the physiotherapy table injured.
However, that hasn’t put off the Blades, who are keen to bring him back to these shores, as explained by Gazzetta dello Sport a few days ago.
Should that happen, then Leeds United would be set to receive some of the transfer fee, as Sampdoria, when purchasing the player from Elland Road, included a 10% of a future ‘capital gain’ clause in the deal.
That’s according to SampNews24, who explain that Marcelo Bielsa’s side are ‘hoping’ for the sale, as that would see them receive a likely small, but always welcome, windfall.
Every little helps, as the saying goes.
