MLS outfit LAFC are closing in on the signing of Leeds United midfielder Mateusz Bogusz, as he currently remains on loan at UD Ibiza.

Leeds’ youth investment hasn’t been a complete success story like Willy Gnonto and Crysencio Summerville would paint it out to be.

There have been plenty of players who have joined Leeds but struggled to hit the heights of their youth teammates, and transfers away are the best option for them.

Mateusz Bogusz to leave Leeds?

Polish youth international midfielder Mateusz Bogusz is currently spending another season on loan with UD Ibiza after a major knee injury hampered his brilliant first half of the 2021/22 campaign.

However, journalist Tom Bogert revealed that the midfielder was in advanced talks to move to the MLS to join LAFC, the side currently home to Carlos Vela and Giorgio Chiellini.

How close is the deal?

Mo Ibrahim has now shed more light on the deal, revealing that there was interest from both France and Spain for his signature, but LAFC look to be thrashing out the final details of a deal this week.

He reveals that the club are closing in on the signing of Bogusz, and the deal will be “over the line” very soon.

Bogusz will become the second player to leave Leeds permanently in 2023, following fellow Pole Mateusz Klich to the MLS, who joined DC United.

Will Leeds stay up?

Yes

No

It’s for the best that Bogusz seals a permanent exit from Leeds, so he can kick on in his career and really start to showcase his ability on a big platform.

The MLS is a huge league now brimming with young talent, and he could be a real coup for LAFC.

Shining with Ibiza is one thing, but this looks to be a major step up in the 21-year-old’s career, able to play on a big stage.
