Typical Leeds, after all the joy that was last week in regards to signing players, it looks like things could be crashing back down to earth again.
The Scottish Sun are reporting that Rangers are willing to pay £5m for forward Kemar Roofe, who scored 15 goals for Leeds last season, with BBC Sport’s Adam Pope adding fuel to the fire by saying that the story is legitimate.
Having brought in a few attacking players so far this summer, then one of the regulars from last year may have to give way, and Roofe could be one of them. Unless of course, Bielsa decides he wants to bring back the 2-3-5 formation, which I personally wouldn’t totally be against, then there may have to be some sacrifices along the way.
With Patrick Bamford getting the nod towards the latter stages of last season, perhaps that’s a sign of who Marcelo Bielsa trusts more. Which is why a few Leeds fans were slightly concerned over this news, and wanted to distance themselves from it. They’ve seen Leeds sell off their promising players before, and they ideally don’t want to go through it again.
Stop this right now.

How anyone can defend the club is beyond me – selling our best CB to a rival for £5m and now this, absolute shambles.
