Andrea Radrizzani twist at Leeds United as Sky Sports pundit predicts no ready-made buyers at Elland Road

We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United

Paul Robinson has claimed the takeover of Leeds United won’t be as “clean-cut” if the club is relegated to the Championship.

It’s widely anticipated that the 49ers will take control of the club in January 2024, however, Leeds’ valuation could take a hit if they succumb to relegation.

Sam Allardyce’s side’s fate hangs by a thread after the Whites were beaten 3-1 by West Ham United on Sunday afternoon (21 May).

Robinson has suggested that there may not be a “ready-made” buyer for the club if and when they do return to the second-tier.

“I suspect the deal is nowhere near as clean cut and a done deal as we think it might be if the club is in the Championship,” Robinson exclusively told MOT Leeds News.

“It might be a case of Radrizzani not having ready-made buyers if the club does fall into the second tier.

“But, regardless of who owns the club, the ideal would be to bounce back at the first opportunity and keep as much of that squad as you can together.

“Reinvest the parachute money, which if the club is on a sound financial footing, they are able to do and then cut its cloth accordingly over how to bounce back as soon as possible.”

In other Leeds United news, our exclusive pundit has demanded an internal investigation takes place at the club.
