CEO confirms Leeds United made club-record bid for playmaker

Club Brugge CEO Vincent Mannaert has revealed that Leeds United were ready to break their transfer record to sign Charles De Ketelaere this summer.

The 21-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Elland Road during the latest transfer window as the Premier League club battled it out with AC Milan for the Belgian star’s signature.

Milan won out in the end and signed De Ketelaere for £27m at the start of last month, but Brugge CEO Mannaert has revealed that Leeds offered more money for the youngster.
