Jean-Kevin Augustin has little chance of playing again for Leeds United with Marcelo Bielsa.
The Yorkshire giants borrowed Augustin on loan in the January transfer window and the deal also contained an obligation for them to sign it permanently for € 21 million in case they win the promotion to the Premier League.
Leeds returned Augustin to RB Leipzig, claiming that his loan ended at the end of June, but is now facing a legal battle with the German club, which claims that whites must sign it permanently if they win the promotion this season. regardless of the date on which this promotion takes place.
However, Augustin seems to have fallen out of favor with Bielsa and, according to The Athletic, there is little chance, if any, of playing under the Argentine again.
The striker was out of shape when he arrived in Leeds and after showing up for just 48 minutes, he suffered an injury.
He was credited with working hard during the unscheduled break, but another injury derailed his chances of being present.
RB Leipzig is engaging in a legal battle with Leeds and believes there is no doubt that the Yorkshire side has to pay € 21 million to sign Augustin if they win the promotion.
Although Leeds sent him back to Germany, RB Leipzig remains reluctant to use it as it would signal that he is still on the books and could influence their case against the whites.
