Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has been an admirer of Nahitan Nández even before he joined Cagliari from Boca Juniors in 2019.

Earlier this month, Centrotrentuno explained the midfielder’s league performances have caught attention of the Whites, Inter Milan and AS Roma, and these three sides want to sign him.

Three days ago, we relayed claims made by La Nuova Sardegna that Leeds United ‘insist’ on signing the 25-year-old.

It was also stated the Premier League side’s manager is ready for ‘economic madness’, meaning the Whites would pay his full €36m release clause in order to bring the Uruguay international to Elland Road

Bielsa is determined to get the deal done, but according to Calciomercato, the South American ‘does not seem convinced’ about joining Leeds.

The Serie A winners also like the Cagliari star, and his stance on Leeds would come as encouragement to Inter.

Nández, for his part, will ‘get to the heart’ of the situation around his future after the continental tournament.
