Leeds United Target La Liga Star As Marquee Signing With Marcelo Bielsa Wanting A Forward For Premier League Return
Rodrigo is available as cash-strapped Valencia have placed their entire squad up for sale due to financial issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The forward is valued around £30 million but the La Liga outfit may reduce their asking price if Leeds table a respectable offer, according to transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio.
The 29-year-old has two years left on his current contract but his future lies elsewhere with Valencia's struggles.
Rodrigo came through Real Madrid's youth academy yet never made a senior appearance.
