Leeds United director Ivan Bravo has been linked with buying Spanish club Alcorcon.

Spanish newspaper AS report Bravo is set to partner with American investors to buy the second division side.

 

Bravo is a director on the Leeds board, brought to the club by Andrea Radrizzani.

The former Real Madrid chief owns the Aspire Academy in Qatar.

Bravo's Aspire Academy already own a majority stake in Spanish club Cultural Leonesa, where Leeds sent Ouasim Bouy and Yosuke Ideguchi on loan two seasons ago.

AS report Bravo would have to step down his role at Leonesa in order to buy Alcorcon, who are currently owned by former Charlton owner Roland Duchatalet, who is looking to sell up.

Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani is currently looking to sell a stake in the club to Qatar Sport Investors (QSI) who own PSG.

It's not suggested in the AS report that Bravo's Alcorcon interest is connected.

However if he is taking up a more active role elsewhere, it could be because his role on the board at Leeds could be reduced or replaced by new investors.
