This morning on Twitter, rumours have begun to circulate that Marcelo Bielsa has agreed on a deal that will take him to Elland Road this season.
Journalist Jason Pettigrove tweeted this morning to suggest that the Argentinian has agreed on a deal and that Leeds United will make an announcement once his work permit comes through in the coming hours.
#LUFC fans will be delighted. Deal for Bielsa is completed and an announcement will be made in the next few hours once his work permit has arrived. Strap yourselves in!!!

Well done Leeds, fantastic hire, Championship 2018/19 is fascinating#Bielsa doesn’t guarantee success but I think he’s a good fit for them

Fair play to bielsa for not jumping straight into the job, I’m sure he wants to know will he have money to spend on players. He’s probably watching Leeds videos from last season and saying that’s the worst team I’ve ever seen play football.
