Leeds United manager, Marcelo Bielsa has been linked with a shock move to Italian giants, AS Roma according to La Gazzetta dello Sport via Football Italia.
The Italian media outlet claim that the Whites boss is on the shortlist to take permanent charge of the European giant for the start of next year’s league campaign.
Roma recently appointed Claudio Ranieri as their manager until the end of the season, but it seems unlikely that the former Fulham and Leicester boss will remain in charge on a permanent basis.
The same report claims that AS Monaco manager, Leonardo Jardin is also being considered alongside the Argentine.
Bielsa has been at the heart of the success at Leeds this season and supporters will be fearing the worst after reading of this latest rumour.
The Yorkshire based side are currently sat 3rd in the Championship table and he’s sure to be focused on winning promotion with Leeds this season.
But should Leeds supporters be worried about Bielsa potentially moving on at the end of this year’s campaign?
“They should and shouldn’t.
“If Leeds go up, I think Bielsa will stay in charge.
“But if Leeds remain in the Championship, the likelihood of him leaving increases that’s for certain.”
“Leeds should worry.
“Bielsa has changed the way they operate and revolutionised the club.
“He’s been incredible and if they lose him, it will bit hard.
“It wouldn’t be the end of the club, but it would be a hugely disappointing end to such a promising spell.”
“They should be panicking.
“Bielsa has been the main reason as to why Leeds are challenging for promotion to the Premier League and if he leaves in the summer, it could have disastrous consequences.
“It all depends on this season though, as I can’t see him leaving if they win promotion.
“But if they don’t, then he’s almost certainly heading for the exit door.”
