According to the Daily Telegraph, Marcelo Bielsa wants to stay at Leeds United, but he has fears over next season.

The Telegraph insists that Bielsa does not want to depart Leeds, but he will not stay if his fears are proven to be warranted.

Bielsa has concerns that he will be told that Leeds need to cut costs next season, which could lead to his best players being sold.
