Leeds United takeover news as 49ers Enterprises close in on agreement
Leeds United and the 49ers Enterprises are closing in on a takeover agreement with the latter valuing the club at a total price of £170million, according to the Daily Mail.
Radrizzani, 48, is understood to be willing to pass over control of Leeds to the 49ers, who already owned a 44% stake in the club.
The pair held productive talks on Monday (5 June) and a resolution could be reached before the end of the week.
The takeover between the 49ers and Radrizzani has been seemingly going on for an age, but it finally looks as though the Italian is willing to relinquish his control of the club.
After the debacle of Radrizzani’s Sampdoria bid and his use of Elland Road as a security, it was only a matter of time before he left the club.

The fans have had enough of the 48-year-old’s failures in West Yorkshire, and after the departures of Victor Orta and Sam Allardyce, a change at the top of the tree should allow the club to turn over a new leaf next season.
If the 49ers are seriously going to complete their takeover of the club, it must happen as soon as possible.
The club have a whole host of transfer ins and outs to complete following their relegation to the Championship, while a new manager and director of football are also required before the start of next term.
Hopefully, the positive talks on Monday night will speed up negotiations and allow the 49ers to take full control of Leeds United.
