Two Serie A clubs are ready to pounce for Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa according to a report from Italian publication L’Arena.
They are said to be Fiorentina, who currently sit 13th in the table, losing a total of 10 games out of 26 played – along with 8th place Hellas Verona.
West Ham United are currently struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League table, putting risk on David Moyes stay at the club.
There are suggestions that they might decide to have a fresh start for the 2020/21 season and get rid.
If they do, the Hammers are said to be considering appointing Hellas Verona manager Ivan Juvic as their new man in the hot seat, something which has come from journalists in Argentina.
It seems as though the Italian club have already lined up who they want if that does indeed happen.
Marcelo was manager of Lazio in 2016, however quit after just two days in charge, prompting Lazio to issue legal action against Bielsa for breach of contract, suing him for €50 million.
Bielsa later explained that the club had been unable to recruit the players he had wanted and did not feel that his needs would be supported during the transfer window.
His stay at the club will all depend on whether Leeds will be promoted or not, with the club currently top of the Championship table.
Talks continue on whether and how to resume the suspended 2019/20 season.
A year ago, the Argentine manager wanted to be assured over the club’s financial situation before signing a one year contract extension, as he was worried he may be forced to sell the side’s best players in the transfer window.
He currently earns more than £3 million a year in his role at the club, making him easily the best-paid manager in the Championship, and fans would be devastated should he part ways.
As one article reports that two Serie A clubs are ready to pounce for Marcelo Bielsa, another one came out today stating that Leeds are open to giving the boss an extension due to this season’s success.Like what the Fan Banter have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
