Some Reading supporters are mocking their Leeds United counterparts after allegedly beating the Whites to one of their summer signings.

According to DigisportGeorge Puscas's move from Inter Milan to Reading came at the displeasure of Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.

 

The report claims Bielsa's scouts were intending to watch Puscas in action against Tottenham Hotspur, but the striker was brought on late in the game and 'did not have time to impress'.

It adds that Leeds then delayed negotiations while Puscas arrived at Reading, for a reported fee of £7.1 million (Transfermarkt), instead.
