    LEED THE WAY

    Leeds United have identified a new target in their search for a midfielder as a move for Michael Cuisance looks increasingly unlikely.

    Italian source Tutto Mercato claim they are keen on Cagliari star Nahitan Nandez.

    Marcelo Bielsa is believed to be a huge fan of the 24-year-old.

    He has made 31 appearances for Uruguay since 2015.

    GOOD MORNING LEEDS FANS

    SunSport will be bringing you all the latest news and stories from Elland Road as they happen.

    First off, Michael Cuisance's move to Leeds appears to be OFF in a huge blow to Marcelo Bielsa's plans.

    The Elland Road chief had appeared to be on the brink of landing the Bayern Munich midfielder in a major summer coup.

    Bayen chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge even said his goodbyes to Cuisance on Instagram.

    Alongside a picture of themselves together, Rummenigge wrote: “Thank you for playing at @fcbayern @michaelcuisance.

    “Merci! And all the best for the future.”

    But now, Sky Germany have revealed the deal is OFF.

    The report claims the two clubs could not come to an agreement on a fee.

    Meanwhile, Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani admitted he would welcome new investment in the Elland Road club — but vowed to stay put.

    Radrizzani sold a ten per cent stake to the San Francisco Giants in 2018 and has been linked with Qatari Sports Investment, a business arm of the Gulf state.

    He told the SportsPro Live virtual conference: “Don’t worry, I’m not leaving.

    “I’m starting to enjoy it, so let me stay here for a while.

    “The model we have is not similar to Manchester City but more focused on football and Europe.

    “So we are looking at Spain, Portugal, France or Italy.

    “We don’t have a rush and when we see the right opportunity we can discuss with different investors to join the project and the platform and build together.”
