His contract expires soon and the club has just kind of assumed he would sign cause he is Bielsa and that's just who he is.

When I googled this I did note that the only papers carrying this story are the sun and the mail, so it's not possible to say there is truth in it as there is never truth in either of those papers.

I want to think that he would stay, bit come on, its Barcelona...

If he signs a new contract I dont think he break that.

But if we lose him cause the club didnt get his contract all that good will is defenistated straight out the nearest window

It just wouldn't be Leeds if there weren't a few unsettling stories out there. I never assume it is a given Bielsa stays on and I am sure the club don't either.

I take comfort from the fact as Matty says the only papers covering it are chip wrapping quality rags in terms of their accuracy and credibility.

The Sun and Mail? It's BS.

Heard the same thing when Hockaday was manager and that never happened ..................

Leeds united fans just revel in the headline truth or not, used to be a laughing stock.

Mattyp lighten up with the “clubs got it wrong” personally don’t think Bielsa would sign a contract until season completed whatever, not his style.

I thought Bielsa likes to improve players, especially young ones, so why would he want to work with Messi?
There’s always something to worry about if you support Leeds!

He only signed another year because that's all that he wanted to commit to. Most other managers would have done a standard 2-4 year deal after the first season that he had.

I'm confident he'll stay. As much as he has the El Loco tag, he's competitive and ambitious. He'll want to try his hand in the Premier League, at least for one season. You could see how much that meant to him and how much he respects the players.

Bielsa has done things his way and won, he's made this team his and they'll walk through walls for him!..

No reason for him to want to leave this club when he's got the chance to play his game in what's meant to be the best league in the World!..

If anything was to go wrong now it'll be because of the Clubs bosses and saying he'll sign no matter what, I read something on the lines of AR saying Bielsa should be privileged to work for Leeds United in the Premiership!..

We should be privileged having this Man at our club!..

Dismiss the Sun & Mail as news tellers all you like, I’d join you in doing so. The sports coverage in both can be ok .... hopefully it’s just a story that goes away.

Oh & if these stories are even remotely true, then the club need to sign him up & not mess him around with squad building 👍

If Messi wants to play for Bielsa, he could always as his Mother club for a season long loan move!..

That's if Bielsa wants him!..

There are more players at Barcelona than Messi Their academy is incredible. None of that matters however as this will be complete horsesh-t.

Barca haven't won the CL for a while, what is it? 4 season's since they won it? He could try and do that as part of his farewell from football. Hopefully he stays, we need him

Why bring the Mountain to Messi? Bring Messi to the Mountain!

Ow Feck!..

Sorry, just back from a night out with friends, er, yep, Vfl Osna fans and a few others in between!..

One of my mates, I've said a few times is a HSV fan, he said why would Messi want Bielsa in, me with a blank in my head thinking most would want it!..

He said Messi wants away fron Barca!..

So, Hopefully that's enough to say Bielsa is Leeds and Messi is thinking about it!..

Yep, I've been out since 16:00hrs my time and I'm still thinking I'm alright!.

I'm sure lots of you's have that feeling that the person in question will decide what's best for himself, and we should have learnt Bielsa knows what he wants!..

"Barca haven't won the CL for a while, what is it? 4 season's since they won it? He could try and do that as part of his farewell from football. Hopefully he stays, we need him"

Shaun, I was at Elland Road the day Leeds showed Barca that their football wasn't all it was meant to be!..

Messi wasn't!..

First, Bielsa has shown great loyalty to his players, so why should he not have the same attitude with the club (which one can argue is also now "his"?

Second, LUFC under Bielsa is a project that has now progressed to phase two - success in the PL. I'm sure he'll now be wanting to test himself in the most competitive arena in football.

Third, he's now 65. He may think he's too old to start again with another club. He's worked like a man possessed for two years to get us up - he won't just walk away from the foundations he's built.

Fourth, Bielsa is that rare thing, a man with integrity. He won't walk away from Leeds for the sake of money or celebrity. He would only do so if there was something fundamentally wrong at his current club.

Fifth, the Sun and the Mail are utterly corrupt rags not even fit for wiping your backside. Their editors are only interested in generating divisions amongst people for the purposes of profit. This is fake news.

This is the second time its been suggested he'll walk!..
