Michael Cuisance’s transfer to Leeds United has seemingly fallen through after the Whites failed to agree terms with Bayern Munich.
The Whites were said to be on the brink of landing French midfielder Cuisance, with an announcement expected soon.
Indeed after agreeing a deal with Leeds, the 21-year-old snubbed a late bid from a rival in favour of an Elland Road switch.
Cuisance is thought to have been in England to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms. A five-year deal had been agreed.
According to Sky Germany, however, the deal to take Cuisance to Leeds has fallen through at the 11th hour.
Mystery surrounds the exact reason as to why, though journalist Max Bielefeld reports the move had ‘failed’.
Bielefeld says the two clubs ‘could not agree’ on the deal, though it’s not yet clear what aspect of the transfer he’s referring to.
Asked about developments at his latest press conference earlier, Marcelo Bielsa also remained coy.
He insisted he did not want to talk about the deal before it goes through.
“I would prefer to talk about him when he is officially our player,” Bielsa said. “I don’t want to repeat the episode with Dan James.”
Bielsa’s hesitancy was clearly wise, with Sky Germany set to explain later why the move had fallen through.
