Leeds United have failed with an attempt for Real Madrid Castilla coach Raul.
AS says the Madrid reserve team boss has declined an offer from Leeds United to become Jesse Marsch's successor.
The poor run of results at the Yorkshire club has led to Jesse Marash's sacking and Victor Orta, Leeds' sporting director, now has to look for a new head coach at Elland Road.
The English side wanted to hand over the reins to Raúl, who is currently in the midst of a promotion race with Castilla.
However, the timing, according to the Madrid legend and the club, is not ideal and that has put him off. Raúl does not want to leave the club in the middle of the season.
