Leeds United ‘agree’ deal for Rodrigo De Paul

Leeds United are moving closer to signing Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul, according to reports.

Rumours have been rife over the past week about Leeds’ interest in the Argentinian midfielder. It appears like talks between them and Udinese have moved quickly, with a deal now looking like it is close to being finalised.

Reports from Italian outlet FantaCalcio suggest that a €35million fee has been struck between the clubs. This figure works out at around £31 million, which will break the Whites’ transfer record once again.



The report went on to add that Juventus have also been interested in De Paul this summer. But Leeds have acted quickest to potentially beat the European giants to the purchase of the midfielder.

This signing would be a huge statement of intent from Marcelo Bielsa’s side. Since he signed for the club in 2016, De Paul has been a key figure of the Udinese team, making 146 appearances in all competitions.

De Paul has scored 24 league goals and he has provided 22 assists in Serie A over the last four seasons.

His form domestically has been rewarded with his first call-ups for Argentina. Since 2018, De Paul has been capped a total of 17 times for La Albiceleste.

Bielsa has moved swiftly to improve his Leeds side this summer. They have already broken their transfer record to sign Rodrigo Moreno from Valencia for a reported fee of £27 million.

Germany international Robin Koch has been another marquee signing, joining from Freiburg for £13 million.

Jack Harrison has returned to the club on another season-long loan from Man City, while Helder Costa and Illan Meslier have joined on permanent deals.

Leeds have also secured the services of youngsters Joe Gelhardt and Cody Drameh from Wigan Athletic and Fulham respectively.

The Rodriguez assist that has Everton fans licking their lips

The Rodriguez assist that has Everton fans licking their lips

James Rodriguez is known for conjuring magic from his wand of a left foot, and we’ve seen plenty of clips resurfacing recently that highlight his talent as a move to Everton edges closer.

Rodriguez will be forever entwined with the 2014 World Cup. It was, after all, what brought his name to global attention, thrusting him into the spotlight as he lit up the tournament played on his home continent.

A £63million move to Real Madrid followed, where the Colombian teamed up with world-renowned coach Carlo Ancelotti. The pair instantly hit it off, with Rodriguez netting 13 times and providing as many assists in his maiden La Liga campaign.

Things went somewhat downhill from there. Ancelotti tried to revive his career three years later, signing him on loan at Bayern Munich, but Carlo got the chop one month later, leaving Rodriguez to play out yet another mediocre campaign.

Now, though, the duo are on the cusp of being reunited for a third time. Everton’s board have given the transfer the green light, so Rodriguez’s move to Merseyside seems imminent. Everyone loves a trilogy, don’t they?
