Leeds United remain subject of interest from Qatar Sports Investments (QSI).

Le Parisien report that the PSG owners are continuing to explore the possibility of buying Leeds.

The report states QSI are prepared to lay out more than £70 million, the figure they paid for PSG in 2011.

 

It's still unclear if Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani is willing to sell his majority stake, but QSI appear to be willing to put the funds forward to make a tempting offer.

QSI see Leeds as a valuable commodity in their plans to expand their portfolio and are not put off by Leeds failing to earn promotion.

The report notes QSI see Leeds in 'good condition', on and off the pitch.

There is no timeframe mentioned for a proposed offer.

All of this is encouraging news for Leeds, who have not got a lot of money to invest in players at present.

Whenever QSI's proposed offer goes ahead, the Whites will have the funds to keep their best assets and add more, and this will lead to increased competitiveness on the pitch.
