When Leeds United decided to splash out £27m or so on Valencia’s Rodrigo, the move was widely seen as a coup,
After all, Marcelo Bielsa’s side had only just been promoted from the Championship and there was no guarantee they’d do well in the Premier League.
They have, which hasn’t come as too much of a surprise, but Rodrigo hasn’t been the hit many hoped he would be.
Sure, he’s scored three goals in 14 appearances, but with a hefty fee comes expectations, and he hasn’t fully met them yet.
Perhaps he won’t ever do so, at least if Atlético Madrid have anything to say about it, as TuttoNapoli, looking at the situation surrounding Arkadiusz Milik, report.
The Italian website explain that following the departure of Diego Costa, the Spanish club are looking for a striker, and while they are interested in the Polish international, he’s only an alternative for them for the time being.
They state Diego Simeone’s side would rather bring in a striker who plays in Spain, or has at least done so in the past.
On the wishlist is said to be Espanyol’s Raul de Tomas, Real Betis’ Loren Moron and Leeds United’s Rodrigo Moreno.
That’s all they say for now, but it’s something we’ll be keeping an eye on going forward, although we doubt those in charge at Elland Road would be too thrilled at letting such a big investment go five months after his arrival, especially after his goal against West Brom on Tuesday night.
