Mexican side Pachuca want to battle Leeds United for Marcelo Bielsa.
Could there be a sting in the tail for Leeds United in their pursuit of manager Marcelo Bielsa?
Pachuca are looking to replace former boss Diego Alonso.
The report claims Pachuca vice president Andres Fassi met with Bielsa already to sound him out.
Bielsa was in Mexico at the weekend for a conference, before returning to South America.
Should Leeds be worried?
Whenever there is competition for a target, there is reason for the club to be anxious.
Yet Leeds have got so far in negotiations that they should be confident Bielsa will be theirs.
The Telegraph claimed yesterday lunchtime that Leeds hoped to announce Bielsa 'in 24 hours', and that forecast will soon be proven one way or another.
Bielsa's meticulous planning is also unlikely to lead to him suddenly ditching the Whites' offer at the last minute.
