Some Reading supporters are mocking their Leeds United counterparts after allegedly beating the Whites to one of their summer signings.
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.
The Romanian has scored three goals in his first seven outings for the Royals, whose fans have reacted as follows on Twitter...

But some of a Leeds persuasion are fighting back...
think everybody knows Leeds were not after Pusças in the summer, Digisport using Leeds and Bielsa for clicks, if it were true, no disrespect to Reading and Jose Gomes, who in gods name what choose Reading over Leeds if he’s wanting to further his career?— lou (@bIouface) September 13, 2019
I’m sure he will enjoy the relegation battle— Ryan (@RyanHLUFC) September 13, 2019
Leeds' two strikers - Patrick Bamford and Eddie Nketiah, who arrived on the final day of the summer transfer window - have scored four goals from seven outings and three from five respectively this season.
Would Puscas have been a good addition for Leeds?
