Leeds United backed to sign £18m-rated Champions League ace, Man Utd eye Real Madrid star
Leeds United have just six matches of their 2020/21 Premier League campaign, and will be looking to secure a top-half finish to cap off what has been an excellent return to the top flight after 16 years away from the competition.
The Whites take on arch-rivals Manchester United - who remain in turmoil over their involvement in the highly-controversial European Super League proposals - this weekend, and will be looking to continue their strong run of form with a big win over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
Meanwhile, speaking to the YEP, Leeds defender Pascal Struijk praised his teammate Diego Llorente following his performance in Monday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool - a game in which he scored the equalising goal with a powerful header.
Struijk claimed: "I think he’s become a key player, despite his age. He’s shown what it takes at this level to help the team, in the centre of defence or in the centre of midfield. It’s come to him at a young age and, when it happens, you can only benefit from the experience it gives you.”
"I was lucky in my career that I played quite early, at a high level, and know from experience that it helped me grow as a player,” he said. When you’re in at the deep end you do flourish and develop.”
