Leeds will be worth at least double that of we go up so no chance of selling at that price.— Costa Del LEEDS (@stephen_sdoyle) December 8, 2019
Will believe it when I see it but one things for sure……..We would need considerable investment if we went up. To redevelop the west stand, new training ground and buy players to compete at that level will take hundreds of millions in this day and age.— Wayne Peter Price (@lufcpricey) December 8, 2019
Huddersfield who finished bottom of the Prem last season earned £96.6m. Fair to say Quatar’s offer of £120m is a bit on the small side unless it’s just for a stake in the club. Reckon playing staff must be worth £75m plus ground and goodwill. All dependent on promotion though…— David ‘Carajo’ Forest (@discodaveforest) December 8, 2019
Strange one this, don’t get the £10m investment or what it achieves other than allowing them to open the door and put others off— Ty (@NOHSPUT) December 7, 2019
Leeds are going strong in the Championship at the moment and are among the favourites to clinch automatic promotion to the Premier League.
The Whites are currently second in the league table with 43 points from 20 matches, just two points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion.
Leeds will return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Hull City at Elland Road in the Championship.
