For the past two days, multiple reports coming out of Spain have covered UD Las Palmas’ interest in Leeds United’s Rafa Mujica.
The player is currently on loan at Real Oviedo, but the forward has lost prominence and has has not made a single start for them this season.
La Voz de Asturias once again explains Real Oviedo and the player’s representative are working to take the 22-year-old away from the Spanish club.
On Wednesday, Grada3 and Udlaspalmas.net reported the Whites owned attacker can arrive at Las Palmas, if the Segunda División’s side cut short Pietro Iemmello’s loan stay.
Miguel Ángel Ramírez, Las Palmas’ president, has given an interview to Cadena Ser, relayed by Tinta Amarilla.
The Las Palmas chief stressed Pepe Mel’s side will need to make room in the squad before bringing in new faces to the club. He also spoke about the Leeds United player.
“First we have to lighten the exit operation before analysing the possible arrivals. Rafa Mujica and Dani Ojeda are on our agenda and have been offered to us, but we have no intention of signing anyone,” Miguel Ángel Ramírez said.
“We have a budget and depending on the departures we will see if we can bring someone in. Things are working and we have to try to touch the team as little as possible. At the moment we don’t think there is any position [we need] to strengthen.”
Miguel Ángel Ramírez’s comments confirm earlier reports the Leeds attacker’s arrival at Las Palmas depends on their exit operations.
