There is hope that the 49ers Enterprises may make an announcement regarding their potential takeover of Leeds United after this weekend, according to the Telegraph.

Andrea Radrizzani had an agreement with the Americans to sell his remaining 56% share should the Whites remain in the Premier League, with the price now being negotiated after relegation.

The newspaper has reported on its website that the announcement could clarify whether or not the takeover is being pushed ahead with plans for next season critical.

Leeds are already looking for a new manager after the exit of Sam Allardyce, and with numerous players set to leave after relegation, transfer plans are needed too.

Both of those things will be effected by whoever is in majority control of the club, so clarity is needed so that we can all move on with a positive plan in place.

Only outcome.

Radrizzani simply has to sell the club, there is no other outcome that Leeds fans will accept.

The Italian has quickly become public enemy number one at Elland Road after his antics across the last couple of seasons that many believe got the club relegated.

Now, he is going ahead with a takeover of Italian club Sampdoria, despite Leeds being relegated and him being nowhere to be seen during that happening.

The final straw was that Radrizzani offered to use the stadium as collateral to secure the bank loan for his takeover of Sampdoria, something which has not yet been confirmed.

The 49ers Enterprises will surely be looking on right now with bewilderment as they try and negotiate a lower price for this takeover, with a breakthrough hopefully coming soon.

If they can take 100% of the club with the idea to push it forward, that is best for all parties, and hopefully any kind of announcement can confirm good news within days.
