Leeds have agreed personal terms with Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Cuisance, according to the Guardian.

They report that the French midfielder is keen to leave the European champions this summer.

The report claims that Leeds have offered 20 million euros (£18.2 million), but Bayern want 30 million euros (£27.2 million).

Despite that £9 million discrepancy, the report says that a deal is expected to be reached before the end of the transfer window.


Cuisance has a huge amount of talent but has found it difficult to break into the Bayern side.

But a move to Leeds to work under Marcelo Bielsa could be perfect for him on paper.

Bielsa is an outstanding coach, capable of improving players beyond recognition.

Giving him one of the most talented young midfielders in Europe to shape to his will could be mouth-watering at Elland Road.

Leeds need a reliable player to cover for Pablo Hernandez, who is vital but can’t do it week-in, week-out now.

Tyler Roberts and Rodrigo can do it, but Cuisance would be another level up and there looks to be a spot in that Leeds midfield open for him.

It would be fascinating to see Cuisance work under Bielsa, and this report indicates that’s moving closer and closer.
