Modern football for you eh?

Rodrigo De Paul had been suggesting that he wants to join Leeds United via social media for a while. Liking posts about it and things of that nature. I think he is done with the subtlety.

Rodrigo De Paul confirming on Twitter that he is keen on joining Leeds United.

In a twitter exchange with excellent Leeds United fanzine and podcast The Square Ball (they do a subscription service which I would recommend) he outright said “Yes” to the suggestion that he is keen on the move and it is up to Leeds and Udinese to sort out a deal.

Argentina international De Paul is a signing of a level I didn’t think would be possible as a newly promoted club. Leeds need to get this deal done while it is an option. It is an expensive deal but it is well worth the outlay in my opinion.

There is a long time left in the transfer window so I wouldn’t expect this to suddenly get done in the next two days, but the longer Marcelo Bielsa has to work with him the better, so hopefully it is done as soon as possible.

Are you excited by the prospect of Rodrigo De Paul joining? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @ThruItAllLUFC.
