We’re delighted to welcome football finance expert Dr Daniel Plumley as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...

Dan Plumley has insisted that Leeds United fans will be talking after Andrea Radrizzani was spotted alongside Paris Saint-Germain owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi in Qatar at the World Cup.

The Finance Expert admitted it won’t likely mean that talks of a link between the two clubs will appear again, but it won’t take much to fan the flames again.

Although no leap was made, Plumley did admit that he could see why Radrizzani’s presence in that area would start talk and speculation at Elland Road.

“I think it probably does but I won’t be fanning the flames,” he exclusively told MOT Leeds News.

“People will always talk about it and you can see why, but I think, for me, I wouldn’t make that leap that something is going to go on there.

“I can understand why people would though, Leeds fans will already be talking about that.”


This will no doubt get the speculation going all over again.

Back in November 2019, Radrizzani was a guest of Al Khelaifi at a Paris Saint-Germain with a potential takeover from QSI really doing the rounds back then [Daily Mail].

Of course, now, the 49ers Enterprises have their option to complete a full takeover at Elland Road, but it certainly doesn’t write off Al Khelaifi and QSI getting involved again as investors.

With a close bond growing between the two, Radrizzani could hold the key to anything transpiring between all parties in the coming years.

In other Leeds United news, 36 scouts recently showed up to watch multiple Leeds sensations with as many as four exits on the cards in the January transfer window.
