Leeds United have had a very impressive start to life back in the Premier League, finding themselves comfortably in mid-table and earning a couple of admirers along the way. Part of that comes down to the amount that they spent in the summer, with Transfermarkt putting their spending at £96.1m bringing in players like Rodrigo, Diego Llorente and Raphina.
And according to Jordan (TalkSport, via Leeds Live), it’s going to take that much and perhaps more for them if they are to carry on their progress and move beyond just being a mid-table team:
“You can have the best coach in the world, but he needs the tools.
“He can make players better and can take them to a certain level, but you’ll hear from Bielsa sooner rather than later if the ambitions of the club are to be at that table, he’s going to be £100million plus a season on transfers.”
However, these comments didn’t go down well with fans on the Leeds Live Facebook page when the comments were relayed to them, as they insisted they didn’t need the money to take a step forward, and they’ve got everything they need already at the club:
Should Leeds spend heavily in the summer?
Now we just wait to see which route they go down. Do they build from within in order to progress, or do they spend their way up the table?
