Leeds United reportedly submit offer for exciting forward ahead of 19/20 campaign

Sky Bet Championship side Leeds United have submitted a contract offer to Barcelona youngster Rafa Mujica, according to reports from Football Insider.

The Whites missed out on promotion to the Premier League on Wednesday night, following a 4-3 defeat on aggregate to Derby County, with the club looking to go one step further next time around.

And, it is believed that Marcelo Bielsa’s side are already set on completing their first signing of summer, with Barcelona starlet Mujica reportedly on their radar.

The 20-year-old is set to leave the Catalan giants in the summer, meaning that he would be available on a free transfer, with Leeds eyeing up a move.

The exciting forward, able to play on either flank as well, scored seven goals in 33 games for the Barcelona B side this season, and would add competition to the likes of Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford up top.

And now, reports from Football Insider claim that Victor Orta and his recruitment team are working hard to secure the services of Mujica, and have reportedly offered him a contract at Elland Road.

Leeds will be looking to bounce back with automatic promotion next time out, despite Marcelo Bielsa’s future at Elland Road hanging in the balance after missing out in heartbreaking fashion this term.

The Verdict

It would be a real coup if Leeds were able to sign Mujica, especially on a free transfer.

He has come through the ranks at one of the greatest football clubs in the world, so he clearly has major talent and flair about him.

Leeds need another forward to challenge Roofe and Bamford up top, as Ryan Edmondson is yet to mark his authority on the first-team.
