Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani spotted in talks with Tottenham director Fabio Paratici ahead of January transfer window

Andrea Radrizzani was spotted in talks with Tottenham Hotspur sporting director Fabio Paratici ahead of the Leeds United v Spurs clash on Saturday.

The Whites lost the game 4-3 and it was an entertaining end-to-end contest between the two sides in North London.

However, ahead of kick-off, the two Italians were locked in talks and LeedsLive journalist Beren Cross shared an image of it.

Via Twitter, he wrote, “Andrea Radrizzani in conversation with Spurs managing director Fabio Paratici pitchside.”

Transfer talks or old friends?

We do not think that Leeds or Spurs would want to conduct transfer talks in public so they possibly could be good friends off the pitch.

However, the North London side have been linked with Illan Meslier as they plan to replace Hugo Lloris in the due course.

We do not think this conversation was about the Frenchman but his name certainly would’ve been brought up in talks.

That being said, it’s not really normal for Radz to be out on the pitch speaking to directors of clubs Leeds are set to face off against.

He would’ve liked the performance but certainly not the result as Spurs stole a late victory despite trailing for a considerable period in the game.

Jesse Marsch would’ve wanted to go into the break with a win but will now have to contend with a loss and no football for over a month.

In other Leeds United news, the club have now put up a first-team player on sale as they expect top EFL sides to make a move for him in January.
