Leeds United on brink of QSI takeover, initial £10m investment reportedly incoming

Leeds United have been linked with QSI for a number of months.

Leeds United are reportedly on the brink of a takeover from Qatar Sports Investment, the branch of the Qatari government which owns French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

Reports regarding Qatari interest in Leeds have been circulating for months now. 

Leeds United fans have been teased with potential investment from Qatar in recent months. It was reported by the Financial Times back in May that the Qatari governments sporting wing, known as QSI, were looking to invest in Leeds. 

Andrea Radrizzani later spoke about the possibility of a deal with QSI and The Times reported about the continued interest a month ago.

Now it seems these reports could be edging closer to reality. As reported by the Daily Star, QSI are set to pay £10 million for a stake in the West Yorkshire club at some point in the coming weeks. They will then spend a further £120 million to purchase the club outright if Leeds United win promotion to the Premier League. 

 

TBR’s View

Leeds United fans are no strangers to takeover rumours and the links between current chairman Andrea Radrizzani and Qatar have been well publicised. 

Whilst some may be concerned about what a Leeds United owned by QSI might look like, there is undoubted excitement at the prospect of Leeds spending big money on top players in their bid to cement themselves as Premier League force once again.
