Leeds United value to skyrocket after QSI development, 49ers must rethink £150m demands

It promises to be a summer of change at Leeds United with the 49ers looking to increase their control at Elland Road.

It’s widely excepted that a full takeover will take either over the summer or in January 2024. The Whites’ Premier League position has thrown a spanner in the works for Andrea Radrizzani. The Daily Mail reported on 18 April, that the Italian businessman could lose a significant sum off the valuation of the club.

It’s believed Leeds are valued at £420million in the Premier League and £150million if they fall into the second tier. The 49ers are not willing to move above that price tag.

However, after a development on Thursday 25 May, they may have to rethink their £150m demand.

French newspaper L’Equipe report that Qatar Sports Investment, who also own PSG, are assisting Radrizzani in his well-publicised attempt to buy Sampdoria.

The report also suggests that Qatari businessman Nasser Al-Khelaifi could be interested in investing in Leeds in the long term. The odds of QSI investing in Yorkshire club are pretty slim, but, the rumours of fresh interest could see Radrizzani’s value of the club increase, even if they are in the Championship.

Competition for the Yorkshire club could cause a bidding war, which in turn sees Leeds’ value rise. Of course, it’s all hypothetical, but Radrizzani could still land a little higher than the £150million that the 49ers are willing to cough up.

All will become much clearer when Leeds find out their Premier League fate on Sunday evening.
