Bielsa is without a job after leaving Lille last season.

He has never managed in English football before and is famous for his revolutionary tactics, which include a 3-3-1-3 formation.

El Correo report Leeds are negotiating with Bielsa and that talks are 'on track'.

Bielsa has managed the Chile and Argentina national teams and recently had stints with Athletic Bilbao, Marseille, Lazio and Lille.

He is seen as a maverick and his methods are controversial, but he would certainly bring excitement to Leeds, who are desperate to win promotion to the Premier League.
