Fans of Leeds United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report regarding the contract situation of the Whites manager, Bielsa.

According to a recent report by the Argentine outlet, La Nacion, Andrea Radrizzani is “very close” to agreeing a new two-year deal with Bielsa, which would see him remain at Elland Road until the summer of 2023.

Starting with an easy one who is Leeds United's top Premier League goalscorer this season?

The report goes on to claim that, with the 65-year-old only having previously agreed one-year deals throughout the course of his three years in England, should Leeds manage to convince El Loco of a longer contract, it would represent something of a novelty for the Argentinian boss.

And, after the news of Bielsa’s contract talks were relayed by a Leeds United fan account on Twitter, the Elland Road faithful flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing delighted at the prospect of their club’s manager remaining in charge for a further two years.

Is Bielsa Leeds' ever manager?

Yes

Yes

No

So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to the report regarding Marcelo Bielsa’s contract?

“Pleeeeease.”

@BenTorode4

“You can forget your transfer talk, this would be the signing of the summer!”

@ross_johnson7

“2 years? Wow, that’s new.”

@stevemaher34

“Please make it happen!”

@jamma_294

“What would be the best news possible”

“I beg.”

@JakewMatthews

“Come on!”

@uncleleeds

“If this is true.”

All in all, it would seem as if these are over the moon at the thought of Bielsa staying on at their club for a further two years. And considering just how well the 65-year-old has done with the Whites in a relatively short space of time, taking a side that had finished in 13th place in the Championship prior to his arrival to one that currently sits in the top half of the Premier League, it is not difficult to understand why.
