Leeds' Michael Cuisance transfer 'collapses at last-minute' in blow to Marcelo Bielsa's plans

MICHAEL CUISANCE'S move to Leeds appears to be OFF in a huge blow to Marcelo Bielsa's plans.

The Elland Road chief had appeared to be on the brink of landing the Bayern Munich midfielder in a major summer coup.


Bayen chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge even said his goodbyes to Cuisance on Instagram.

But now, Sky Germany have revealed the deal is OFF.

The report claims the two clubs could not come to an agreement on a fee.

Cuisance, 21, has been deemed surplus to requirements at the Allianz Arena.

And after being left out of the squad that lost 4-1 to Hoffenheim, the Frenchman looked set to be on his way out.

Sharing a picture of themselves together, Rummenigge even said his goodbyes to Cuisance on Instagram on Wednesday.

Rummenigge wrote: "Thank you for playing at @fcbayern @michaelcuisance.

"Merci! And all the best for the future."

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano had previously revealed Cuisance had completed his £18million move to Leeds, signing a five-year deal.

Romano tweeted: "Leeds are in advanced talks to sign Michael Cuisance, as per L’Equipe.

"€20m (£18m) offered to Bayern Munich and personal terms agreed until June 2025.

"Fee details still to be completed between clubs."

And it appears the deal collapsed due to a failure to agree on a transfer fee in the 11th hour.
