Bielsa utilised the tactic while managing Chile, and it is understood to be his favourite tactical system.
Bielsa felt it was too revolutionary to try at Leeds last term, and operated with a more conventional 4-3-3.
However, with Leeds’ squad staying fairly similar this summer, the Whites’ team now have a year of playing under Bielsa under their belts, and there is a feeling that they are capable of coping.
If Bielsa does switch Leeds’ style it would be a drastic change, and a risk.
Bielsa likes the system because it allows his players more creative freedom in the final third, and gives his teams options between the lines.
If Leeds can perform it as successfully as Chile did under Bielsa’s guidance then it could be a masterstroke.
Leeds begin their season this weekend, when they take on Bristol City, and it could be the first chance for Whites fans to get a look at Bielsa’s new tactic.
