Talks are ongoing regarding a Leeds United takeover.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani looks on before kick off during the Sky Bet Championship match between Charlton Athletic and Leeds United at The Valley on September 28, 2019 in London,...

Leeds United owner last month Andrea Radrizzani told The Times that he is considering three different investors wanting to buy a stake in Leeds United.

One of them are PSG's wealthy Qatari owners (QSI) and a fresh report in French newspaper L'Equipe has given an update.

 

L'Equipe report talks are ongoing between Leeds and QSI.

It also explains QSI's intentions. The report explains the pitch they are making to Andrea Radrizzani.

A QSI spokesperson states: "It's an opportunity, it's interesting and it's a big name in English football that we can help develop and bring back (in the Premier League); a very beautiful brand with which we can recreate a story."

They are clearly looking to expand their portfolio and seeking a new challenge, but Andrea Radrizzani is in no rush to make up his mind.

It is good for Leeds that QSI have not been deterred by the fact Radrizzani wants more time, and is weighing them up against competitors.

QSI are super rich and could turn Leeds into a force. If the Whites can win promotion, then the Qatari investors could transform them into a top 10 Premier League side straight away.
