Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa was caught on camera arriving at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium earlier today.
With the transfer window in full swing, some fans believe that the veteran manager might be there to sign a player ahead of the return of Premier League football.
Besides signing Jack Harrison on a permanent deal, the Whites have had a slightly underwhelming window so far, with Junior Firpo’s arrival from Barcelona being the only noticeable name.
Though things might be about to heat up on the transfer front as there have been links between Leeds United and Manchester City’s Yangel Herrera.
Bielsa could have possibly been discussing a move for the Venezuelan, who is yet to play a single match for Pep Guardiola’s side since joining the club back in 2017.
Although Bielsa’s reason for a visit might be not transfer related, it hasn’t stopped fans from speculating the wildest possible scenarios.
Voice of reason

U23s had a behind closed doors friendly against them a few days ago so maybe something to do with that? https://t.co/yPKWdhQxgT— Danny Heffernan (@DannyH_2001) August 10, 2021
Yangel Herrera incoming?

Can’t see him being there for any other reason apart from to talk over a potiental signing- Yangel Herrera.
Would 100% take him at Leeds, get it done @andrearadri
Possibly Bernardo Silva
