Leeds Owner Responds To Rumours Club Will Sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic And Edinson Cavani

Leeds Owner Responds To Rumours Club Will Sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic And Edinson Cavani

Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has admitted that it would be "difficult" for the club to land Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but he teased they could make a move for Edinson Cavani.

Marcelo Bielsa's men captured the Championship crown and have ensured the club's return to the Premier League next season, ending a 16-year-long wait for promotion.

And the Leeds boss will no doubt want to reinforce his squad options as the club starts life in England's top-flight domestic league.

Leeds were linked with both Ibrahimovic and Cavani in the January window, but the soon-to-be Premier League club didn't land either player.

Ibrahimovic, 38, returned to AC Milan in January after his time with MLS side LA Galaxy.

Radrizzani believes that "it's too late" to make a move for Ibrahimovic, saying the "intensity of English football is different."

"Now I think it's too late, the intensity of English football is different."

Cavani, 33, was reduced to only 22 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain this season and has since become a free agent.

And Radrizzani would be more optimistic making a move for the former PSG and Napoli striker over Ibrahimovic.

"In addition to his quality, Cavani could contribute with his physicality and adapt here, but I've never talked about him with the coach," he said.

"Having said that, we've certainly thought about him and we'll see, given he's still available on a free transfer."

Leeds will play their final Championship match of the season on Wednesday evening when they welcome Charlton to Elland Road.
