Fan opinion has been split on Costa, and it would be fair to say that he hasn’t been at his best this season. However, I still think this is a good deal for Leeds - although it is on the expensive side. However, it was said when the deal was initially done that Leeds are paying the fee in installments, and the fee will be split across the length of the contract when it comes to profit and sustainability regulations so it is an affordable expense for the club. I also back Marcelo Bielsa to get the best out of him, many players have looked better in their second season under the former Argentina and Chile Head Coach.
We'd like to wish Helder Costa the very best for the next stage of his career.— Wolves (@Wolves) July 7, 2020
