Leeds have been locked in negotiations with Bielsa for weeks now, and are intent on landing the Argentine.
However, the discussions have been prolonged, with Bielsa taking his time before accepting any job at Leeds.
If the 62-year-old is to take charge at Elland Road, he has reportedly told Leeds that he want the players in early for pre-season.
Bielsa has a very unique style, and the former Marseille man wants to give Leeds’ squad the most amount of time possible to get used to his demands.
Bielsa also reportedly wants to completely transform Leeds’ training schedule if he does take charge.
The attacking coach plays with a high-pressing style, which will demand Leeds’ players to have supreme fitness levels.
The links with Bielsa have caused great excitement around Elland Road, and Leeds fans will be hoping that they can land their first choice managerial target in the near future.
