Rodrigo De Paul shows his strength in intense workout session
Leeds fans have taken Rodrigo De Paul’s latest social media post as a hint to a possible transfer breakthrough. Leeds made big moves in the summer with the likes of Diego Llorente, Raphinha and Spanish striker Rodrigo all joining Marcelo Bielsa’s new-look side.
The latter two have proven big hits on Elland Road in particular while Robin Koch has also impressed in defence.
But they missed out on signing a central midfielder with a host of names linked throughout the summer.
De Paul was seemingly the club’s No 1 target and a bid in the region of £27million was reportedly made to sign the Argentian.
The 26-year-old ultimately stayed at Udinese and he’s taken over the captain’s armband in recent weeks.

Now the January transfer window is open, Leeds are expected to try again in the market to sign a midfielder.
Norwich’s Todd Cantwell is rumoured to be a target while enquiries are said to have been made for Fiorentina star Erick Pulgar.
But interest in De Paul has reportedly not waned and Leeds fans jumped on his latest tweet with the midfielder hinting at a move away from Udinese.
He posted a photo of himself in action for Udinese with the caption: “New year, New challenges. I’m ready.”
And Leeds fans hope one of those new challenges will be by joining the Whites this month.
One supporter replied: “And we’re ready to welcome you.”
Another wrote: “Come and join us at Leeds and bielsaball will take you to the next step.”
A third posted: “If you’re not wearing a Leeds shirt by this time next week then you need a new agent.”
A fourth simply said: “COME TO LEEDS UNITED.”
Another tweeted: “Can think of a lovely challenge for you pal… its in Yorkshire if you wanna have a look.”
Leeds aren’t the only club who have an interest in De Paul though with both Juventus and Inter Milan said to be monitoring his situation.
However, reports in Italy suggest Udinese’s asking price is proving too much for the two Italian giants.
