Per a report from L’Equipe, the rumored move for Bayern Munich midfielder Michaël Cuisance to Leeds United is close to a done deal. That would answer one of the burning questions from earlier today as Cuisance was scratched from the gameday roster.
As we posted earlier in the week, Cuisance was suddenly involved in transfer talks with both Leeds United (sale) and Olympique Marseille (loan). Those discussions must have escalated over the past few days as it appears the talented 21-year-old could be on the move.
Transfer-czar Fabrizio Romano chimed in with some of the specifics of the potential deal:
Leeds are in advanced talks to sign Michaël Cuisance, as per L’Équipé. €20m offered to Bayern Münich and personal terms agreed until June 2025. Fee details still to be completed between clubs. Another bid from #LUFC for de Paul [€25m] was turned down by Udinese. ⚪️ #transfers— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) September 27, 2020
At Bayern Munich, the creative and skilled midfielder is stuck behind Thomas Muller in the pecking order as an attacking midfielder and behind the double-pivot of Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich for a deeper role.
For Cuisance, the move could mean a realistic opportunity for more playing time or even a starting role. For Bayern Munich, however, this would represent another talented departure on a suddenly-thinning roster.
