Even if Leeds sign Tyler Adams, Craig Burley claims that they'll still have a difficult season next season. He joked that if Leeds get relegated, they can blame the Americans, as he reported on US TV.
With Kalvin Phillips out of the exit door and Raphinha seemingly set to follow him, the former striker believes things will go well for Leeds next season.
The Whites had known for a while that they would lose their star players, and they have been proactive throughout the summer.
Adams is creeping closer to joining Marschs from RB Leizpig, according to sources.
Burley had his doubts about the likelihood of Adams' signing when he heard about Raphinha and Phillips' roles.
We can blame the Americans, according to Burley on US TV. Because we have already had Jesse Marsch, who did a decent job of keeping them up.
It's not going to be easy to lose these players (Phillips and Raphinha). Bring in players you know from different leagues.
I could see this, at the moment, Leeds losing the players they had, and then it would be a difficult season for them.
TROUBLES IN THE LAST SEASON
Last season, Leeds fought a serious relegation challenge, one that required Jack Harrison to fire home on the final day of the Premier League season just to be certain.
Nevertheless, they suffered injury, after injury, and after injury their last time out, so it is possible that their luck will not be as bad next season, and having a more fully fit squad will turn the tide.
Marsch is bringing more depth to the team, which will be a plus for the players, and if Patrick Bamford can stay out of the treatment room, it will allow the XI to feel more balanced.
The Yorkshire club has paid for Phillips and four players before they can depart for the pre-season, and that will be of great benefit to Marsch.
