Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani looks on before the Sky Bet Championship match between Derby County and Leeds United at iPro Stadium on February 21, 2018 in Derby, England.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani was in Moscow earlier this week to watch England's World Cup semi-final with Croatia.

While the result was not positive for England, Radrizzani used the event to network.

He was pictured on the Instagram page of former £18 million Leeds' signing Rio Ferdinand, who described Radrizzani as one of 'the guys'.

Ferdinand's picture showed himself and Radrizzani with former Premier League strike hero Didier Drogba and Paris Saint-Germain owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Of the trio, Radrizzani meeting Al-Khelaifi is the most interesting, and Leeds fans will be hoping the club can strike a few deals for PSG talents.

The problem is that so far this summer Leeds' transfer business has been very underwhelming, and their is a lack of confidence that the right deals will be done.

Time is running out before the transfer window closes, but perhaps Radrizzani will pull a late rabbit out of the hat.
