Leeds United could let Rodrigo leave the club if he moves for Che Adams


Leeds United are plotting a move for Southampton striker Che Adams and that should mean Rodrigo is sacked after a disappointing few years at Elland Road.

The Sun reported (July 30) that Leeds are considering a move for the 26-year-old striker as Jesse Marsch lines up adequate competition for Patrick Bamford for the upcoming Premier League campaign.

Bamford and Rodrigo currently represent the club’s only senior striking options with exciting prospects Sam Greenwood and Joe Gelhardt also in contention for minutes in Marsch’s squad.

If Adams moves to Yorkshire, it would make sense for one of Leeds’ five forwards to leave the club.

Fans would be disappointed to see any of their youngsters leave, so a departure for Rodrigo seems the most sensible option for the club at the moment.

His £27million transfer from Valencia didn’t go as everyone would have hoped, with just 13 goals in 63 games a pretty grim reading for the Spain international.

At 31, he’s clearly past his prime and obviously Marsch is trying to sign a proven Premier League striker who is slightly younger.

The Spain international is entering the final two years of his current deal at Elland Road and the club may well be looking to cash in on him this summer to recoup some of the transfer fee they paid for him in the summer of 2020 .

Moving for Adams could well signal that the club are more than happy to let the 31-year-old leave this summer to free up more space in the squad.

The Southampton man would be a superb addition after proving he is more than capable of scoring Premier League level goals at St Mary’s.

It’s definitely time for Rodrigo’s scorching time at the club to end.
