Leeds are delighted with the club’s progress under Marcelo Bielsa in their first season back in the Premier League for 16 years and are keen for him to remain.
However the former Argentina boss, who has been at Elland Road since June 2018, will not deviate from his policy of waiting until the campaign is over before beginning discussions over his future.
Biesla believes opening talks while they are still playing could be a distraction.
Leeds are relaxed about Bielsa’s stance and the former Chile and Marseille boss has agreed at the end of his previous two campaigns to carry on for another season.
Bielsa last contract renewal was on the eve of the current campaign in September and Leeds are quietly confident the 65-year-old will commit to another season at Elland Road.
“I’m very comfortable living and managing in England,” said the Argentinian recently. “Annual contracts do not mean I am not open to staying here longer.”
Chairman Andrea Radrizzani will back Bielsa again in the transfer market this summer and director of football Victor Orta is already working on targets.
