Leeds United shocked everybody with their ambitious plan to appoint Marcelo Bielsa.
First reported by El Correo, talks are ongoing with Bielsa and Leeds are hopeful of a successful outcome.
A revelation from The Telegraph has shed light on their strategy.
It claims Leeds first approached Bielsa back in December.
Thomas Christiansen was manager of Leeds at the time and he was replaced with Paul Heckingbottom several months later.
Bielsa had just left his job at Lille when he was first approached by Leeds and perhaps now he is ready to re enter management.
Their December approach shows this current approach is not just an move on a whim, but an idea the club have been weighing up for several months.
Leeds are seemingly sticking with their plan and are determined to land a big name this summer.
Bielsa would fit the bill and get fans excited, although his patchy record since leaving Athletic Bilbao means he is far from a guaranteed success.
