Leeds manager favourite Sabella held meeting over becoming boss of Paraguay earlier this month

Leeds United are not the only potential job offer Alejandro Sabella has on the table.

The surprise favourite in the running to become the next Leeds United manager is Argentina World Cup boss Alejandro Sabella.

If the Championship side are serious about clinching his services, they are not however going to be unopposed.

Sabella's high profile due to helping Argentina reach the World Cup Final means he is in demand, and has already held unofficial talks over another important national team role.

It was reported in South America just over a week ago that Sabella has held talks over becoming manager of Paraguay.

DiarioRegistrado report he was 'offered the job' during a meeting at a restaurant with the leaders of the Paraguayan FA.

The good news for Leeds fans is their 'sources' suggest Sabella is 'unlikely to accept' the offer, and is weighing up all of his options.

The 59-year-old is a former Leeds United player from the early 1980s, but clearly the Yorkshire side are not going to have it all their own way in attempting to persuade him to return.
