Leeds United could be dealt a bitter blow in their hunt for striker Abel Hernandez, with Champions League contenders Galatasaray reportedly weighing up a move for the Uruguayan.
According to a report in the Hull Daily Mail, the Turkish giants are set to offer the striker a contract worth in the region of £34,000 a week, something which Leeds could well struggle to match, as well as the lure of playing in Europe’s premier competition.
Leeds have been hopeful of landing Hernandez ever since the striker decided not to renew his deal with the Tigers, but with the managerial vacancy at Elland Road still not resolved and filled, Hernandez could well opt to seal a move elsewhere rather than wait for Leeds to make their move.
However, the report does claim that Leeds could well be willing to match the wages, it is more a case of the lack of manager being an issue with the club.
27-year-old Hernandez arrived in Hull following an excellent spell with Palermo over in Italy. He has gone on to make just shy of 100 appearances for the Tigers, boasting an impressive scoring record to go alongside it.
He played a crucial role last season as Nigel Adkins’ men steered themselves away from relegation fear with a good run towards the back end of the campaign.
Leeds fans, what do you make of this? Do you need to sort out the club quickly? Let us know your thoughts!
