Leeds United are reportedly interested in Nemanja Radoja.
To say that Leeds United had an injury-hit season last time around would be an understatement.
Marcelo Bielsa had so many injuries that the treatment room at Thorp Arch needed an extension. Not really, but it was a very extensive list nonetheless.
In fact, it’s a minor miracle that Leeds came as close to Premier League promotion as they did, given that they were down to the bare bones in terms of numbers for several positions throughout the year.
With that in mind, it makes you wonder why in the name of god United would sign Nemanja Radoja.
According to Team Talk, Leeds are interested in the two-time Serbia international, who is available on a Bosman after being released by Celta Vigo.
One of the reasons why he was not given a new deal is because he had a disastrous 2018-19 campaign; not because he was bad, but because he wasn’t available.
Radoja’s last game for Celta was on May 19 of 2018. He didn’t kick a ball in a competitive game for the Spanish side last term and do Leeds need another injury-prone player on the books?
Of course not and it seems very unlikely that the Whites will pursue him. Not only do they have plenty of talented midfielders, but if Bielsa was to bring in another one, it’d be someone with a far less ominous injury record.
