Leeds United Eyeing A Move For This Real Madrid Forward: Should Bielsa Snap Him Up?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Fichajes mentioned that Leeds United are eyeing a move for Real Madrid forward Mariano Diaz. It has been stated that the Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa could offer the ex-Olympique Lyon striker to come to English football during the January transfer window.

Diaz’s Mounting Frustrations At The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium

Diaz has endured a frustrating spell with Los Blancos as he has struggled to earn any meaningful game time so far in this campaign. The Dominican Republic international has only made one senior appearance for the Madrid giants this season, picking up one assist in the process across all competitions.

The 28-year-old has also missed a lot of games during this campaign because of a knock and later, a nose surgery. Whenever Diaz has been fit, he has mostly found himself on Carlo Ancelotti’s bench. Thus, Leeds United are in a good position to lure him away to Elland Road when the transfer window commences at the start of next month.

Should Leeds United Boss Marcelo Bielsa Snap Diaz Up This January?

Diaz has decent pace under his belt which he can use to make some clever runs with the ball in the attacking end of the field. The one-time Dominican Republic international has got a good leap in him that helps him win a few aerial duels for his team.

The talented striker is usually a streaky goal-scorer when he is playing regularly and with confidence on the field. He usually packs a lot of power with his shot attempts but needs to improve his link-up play if he wants to be a success story at a place like Elland Road.

At 28, Diaz has still got time to find some form and give a good account of himself at the highest level. Hence, Bielsa should think about going all out to snap him up during the winter transfer period as he could help the Whites steer clear of the relegation in the second half of this campaign. Diaz could even go on to form a good attacking partnership with Patrick Bamford at the West Yorkshire club in the coming seasons.
