Leeds forward Rodrigo Moreno has hinted that he might leave Elland Road in the near future.
The 31-year-old, whose contract runs out in 2024, has left the door open for a possible return to Spain in a recent interview with Spanish media. It is not all bad news, as the forward was adamant he is ‘happy’ at Leeds right now. Rodrigo has scored nine goals in the league this season, an excellent start to the campaign for the team. His performance against Chelsea was enough to seal all three points in the game.
Speaking to Spanish newspaper AS, Rodrigo shed light on his current situation:
“I’ve always had a special affection for Valencia and its fans, we achieved important things in the years I was there, and I am very fond of the city, on a personal and professional level.”
“My daughter was born in Valencia, and I spent most of my career there. Going back? You never know what the future might bring. Right now, I’m very happy at Leeds and fully focused on our objectives.”
The Spaniard would be 33 years old at the end of his current deal, the club has a decision on their hands: at his age, there’s not much money to be made selling him, so a contract extension may be a compromise for both parties. Either that or they risk losing him on a free in a few years.
