Leeds United: Paris Saint-Germain Qatari owners considering investment in Whites
Leeds United are being considered as a potential club to invest in by Paris Saint-Germain’s Qatari owners, according to 90min.
The Whites are currently owned by Italian Andrea Radrizzani who took over the reins at the club in 2017, overseeing their promotion back to the Premier League.
Now, 90min have revealed that the QSI are exploring options in the Premier League for potential investment and Leeds United are a club they remain keen on.
“Now, 90min understands that QSI are again looking to invest in the Premier League and are assessing their options in England, which include Tottenham Hotspur,” as quoted by 90min (12 January).
“But one club they remain keen on is Leeds and they are believed to have touched base with the club about the situation at Elland Road.
“While the 49ers do have a purchase agreement in place, they have not yet activated their option to buy, and that could tempt QSI to make a bid to take charge at Elland Road.
“QSI have always believed that Leeds represent one of the best investment opportunities in the Premier League, and that remains the case despite holding a meeting with Tottenham in recent weeks.
“They are expected to meet with club others too as they look to expand and continue investing – QSI already hold a 21.6% stake in Portuguese side Braga.”
Go on then.
With the 49ers evidently stumbling at the final hurdle why not have the super-rich Qatari owners throw their cash about in an attempt to wow Leeds United?
After all, if it’s big transfers and competing at the top of the Premier League fans want then an influx of investment from the QSI could be the way to go.
Nevertheless, as we have learned to find out with the whole 49ers ordeal, things like this are never plain sailing and there is no solid indication that the QSI will make a move yet.
But they are obviously gearing up to do something in the English Premier League, whether that is with the Whites remains to be seen.
Whatever the case may be, it will be nice to see how Leeds United would fare with more backing from the boardroom, a UEFA Champions League position would be nice, wouldn’t it?
The situation regarding a takeover will likely become a lot clearer in the coming months, expect this one to have many twists and turns.
