Real Betis reportedly contact Marcelo Bielsa's entourage to discuss the possibility of the Leeds United boss returning to Spain.

Real Betis have reportedly made contact with the entourage of Marcelo Bielsa to discuss the possibility of the Argentine taking charge of the La Liga club for the 2020-21 campaign.

Bielsa, who has managed both Espanyol and Athletic Bilbao in Spain, will see his contract at Elland Road expire at the end of the current season.

The 64-year-old failed to lead Leeds United into the Premier League for the 2019-20 campaign, but the Whites are currently second in the Championship table as they bid to return to the top flight.

According to El Desmarque, Betis have identified the South American as a managerial target, with the speculation surrounding current head coach Rubi's future gathering pace.

Indeed, the Seville outfit have only won one league match in 2020 and are currently on a six-game winless run in all competitions.

The report suggests that Bielsa is looking to leave England this summer and could be enticed to take charge of Los Verdiblancos, who played Europa League football last season.
