Leeds United fans have been left pondering about what might be in the future due to continued speculation surrounding a possible takeover at Elland Road.
In March, 90min reported that Andrea Radrizzani has held talks with Paris Saint-Germain owner Nasser al-Khelaifi, who also owns Qatar Sports Investments (QSI).
It was reported that a deal worth around £120million was close to being agreed between Radrizzani and al-Khelaifi but so far, we have not seen a development on this update.
That news has left some Leeds fans scouring the internet to find out if there is any update on Radrizzani’s future at Elland Road and one fan has pointed out that there was a new document uploaded on Companies House in regards to the club on Wednesday.

Leeds United filed a confirmation statement and as seen in the screenshot above, it says that the statement was made on May 1 “with updates”.
When asked what it means, Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth quashed any feeling that something was about to happen at Elland Road by saying: “It’s the same as last year’s. Shareholdings haven’t changed.”
It's the same as last year's. Shareholdings haven't changed.

There are two lots of shares that are mentioned in the document on Companies House and it is safe to say that they are Radrizzani and 49ers Enterprises, who bought a 10 per cent stake in Leeds in 2018.
While football is on hold, it is unlikely there’ll be any movement in regards to Radrizzani’s future at Elland Road.
But we reckon he’ll stay put in Yorkshire, especially while the club is on the verge of promotion to the Premier League.
