Marcelo Bielsa confirmed in his Friday press conference their £18m-rated striker Rodrigo will miss the game against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, while Raphinha is a major doubt having not returned to training.
Should Leeds sell Rodrigo this summer?
Leeds suffered a heavy 6-2 defeat in the previous meeting between these two sides earlier in the season and some fans were quick to voice their frustration at Phil Hay’s tweet relaying the news they will have to face United without their record signing and his Brazilian teammate.
“Realy sucks, but I feel this is the moment to give some young lads more game time”
All in all, it is apparent these Leeds fans have been left unimpressed by Rodrigo’s absences from the squad this season as a result of injury with many expecting more from their record signing, while there doesn’t seem to be much confidence over getting a result with Raphinha also looking set to miss out.
