Reports in Argentina claim Marcelo Bielsa is close to agreeing a new two-year deal with Leeds and, although he has countered that “the information is not real”, there is growing optimism at Elland Road that the manager will renew a contract set to expire in June. Bielsa’s meeting with Jürgen Klopp should be intriguing. How will Liverpool’s manager – not to mention players – respond after Wednesday night’s Champions League exit to Real Madrid? Can the champions salvage a trophy-less season by somehow finishing in the top four? Then there’s the question of whether there’s still time for the Leeds striker Patrick Bamford to gatecrash Gareth Southgate’s England squad in time for this summer’s Euros. Louise Taylor
