Leeds are set to push their summer transfer spend to £80million with the signing of Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Cuisance. The Yorkshire club are closing in on a deal for the 21-year-old French midfielder, who has been given permission to leave the German giants this summer. getty Michael Cuisance is set for a move to Leeds from Bayern Munich The two clubs are still in ‘advanced talks’ over the deal, but talkSPORT understands an £18million [€20m] fee has been agreed, as have personal terms. Cuisance enjoyed a bright start to his career in Germany, joining Borussia Monchengladbach at the age of 17 and making 24 Bundesliga appearances in the 2017/18 season. Bayern signed the talented left-footed player in 2019 for £10.9m [€12m] on a five-year contract, but it has not gone to plan for him in Bavaria. He made just ten first-team appearances last term, and the Bundesliga champions are ready to cash-in after just one season, with Leeds ready to bring the youngster to the Premier League. And talkSPORT understands the Whites will then turn their attention to signing Norwich ace Todd Cantwell, with a £15m offer being lined up for the 22-year-old before the transfer deadline.
