Bielsa’s Leeds United to sign Rodrigo from Valencia

29

The Brazilian-born Spain international could be set to be Leeds United’s marquee signing ahead of their return to the Premier League after a 16-year absence.

Spanish media reported on Tuesday that Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani and sporting director Victor Orta have travelled to Valencia to negotiate a deal for Rodrigo, 29, who is valued at around 40 million euros.

Rodrigo would be the latest high-profile departure from Valencia after captain Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin left for rival Villarreal this month, sparking fresh protests against owner Peter Lim.

Rodrigo is already well versed in English football after making 17 Premier League appearances with Bolton while on loan from Benfica in the 2010/11 season.
