Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani discusses potential Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic signings

Radrizzani seems to think one is a possibility, I do not.

Earlier this year, Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani said that he briefly discussed the possibility of signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani in the January transfer window - that has come back around following an interview with Sky Sport Italia.

The owner seemingly dismissed the idea of signing the former Sweden international, saying “Ibrahimovic will certainly be difficult”. However, he did not dismiss the idea of bringing Uruguay striker Cavani to the club saying Leeds “will see” - although he admitted he has not been discussed with Marcelo Bielsa.

Radrizzani said: “In addition to his quality, Cavani could contribute with his physicality and adapt here, but I’ve never talked about him with the coach.

“Having said that, we’ve certainly thought about him and we’ll see, given he’s still available on a free transfer.”

Following Leeds United’s promotion to the Premier League, we are going to see some silly links over the next few weeks. A more realisitic link has been to 18-year-old Wigan Athletic striker Joe Gelhardt.
