Speculation regarding Leeds United and Qatar Sports Investments has drawn comments from Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt and Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony.
Leeds United are often in the headlines, and in recent days, the Championship club have been in news as well.
A recent report in The Financial Times claimed that Qatar Sports Investments are interested in buying a stake in Leeds.
The report stated that QSI, who are backed by Qatar and control French giants Paris Saint-Germain, have been in talks with the West Yorkshire outfit’s owner Andrea Radrizzani in recent months.
It was also claimed that that Radrizzani will not use the money raised from the sale of a stake in Leeds to sign players, but instead, he will consider using it to buy another European club.
Both Stanley and Peterborough are in League One, while Leeds are in the Championship.
is there anything you wouldn’t ban.. harsh imo. I’m ok with model allowing multiple club ownerships in different countries within reason of course https://t.co/4Uvt2NYsNx— Darragh MacAnthony (@DMAC102) May 26, 2019
Leeds finished third in the Championship this season and ended up in the playoffs, but the Whites failed to get past Derby County in the semi-finals.
The Whites will hope to make some good signings in the summer transfer window and challenge for automatic promotion to the Premier League again next season.
