Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has admitted he made some expensive mistakes when he first took over the club.
This has left Bielsa in a tricky situation when trying to strengthen his squad and explains why Radrizzani is desperate to bring outside investment to Leeds.
A few of the other players signed have continuously been on loan since Bielsa arrived at Elland Road.
The only way to describe this splurge would be naïve, and it has cost Leeds in the long run, with Bielsa unable to shape the club in the way he wants.
Radrizzani has admitted he made mistakes, and that is good, but his appalling signings have left Leeds struggling for cash and explains why he is so desperate to bring in outside investment to finally return the Whites to the Premier League.
