MOT Leeds News conducted an exclusive interview with Football Finance expert Kieran Maguire, getting his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United – listen to the Price of Football podcast here.
Football Finance expert Kieran Maguire has claimed that Leeds United will be worth up to £300million – the same as Newcastle – if they establish themselves in the Premier League.
Andrea Radrizzani purchased the Whites from Massimo Cellino for only £45million back in 2017 and has since gone on to invest a lot of money in the club.
The Italian believes that the value of the club could reach up to £1billion if they are successful in the Premier League.
Maguire admitted that Leeds could easily be worth up to six times that £45million figure now, claiming that the Coronavirus wouldn’t affect the club if it was on the market.
Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Maguire said, “Yes, Southampton went for £260m pre-pandemic, Newcastle are up for £300m during the pandemic.
“Provided Leeds settle into the Premier League which with Bielsa at the helm is a high probability then I would be anticipating a price closer to the Newcastle value.”
Victor Orta and Angus Kinnear have already made their ambitions of European football clear before a ball has even been kicked in the Premier League.
Radrizzani has opened up on his plans for the club too, with a new training ground next to Elland Road and a stadium expansion on his to-do list.
All of these things could see Leeds’ worth continue to rise, and we wouldn’t put it past going further than that £300million figure in the next 10 years.
