Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has revealed he has received an investment proposal from Qatari billionaire Nasser al-Khelaifi.
The Italian claims he’s considering two more proposals but believes the proposal from Paris Saint-Germain’s owners Qatar Sports Investments and could help Leeds “compete with Manchester City”.
Radrizzani has admitted he is open to outside investment and has already sold a 10 percent stake to 49ers Enterprises, the finance entity behind NFL franchise the San Francisco 49ers.
The Italian businessman has also revealed two other offers under consideration – one is a US-based lifelong Leeds fan and the other owns an Italian football club.
“I have been approached by more than 20 parties and I have selected these three,” Radrizzani told The Times.
“The option of Qatar Sports Investment and Nasser — first of all they are friends, we have had a good relationship for a long time. Secondly, they have the possibility to bring this club to compete with Manchester City, so for the fans that could be a fantastic opportunity."
“The second is based in America, he’s a big fan of Leeds United since he was a child, and I like that."
“Another one is the owner of an Italian club. With another club you can create synergy to be more competitive and to target the Premier League — we could maybe get a loan to increase the quality of the team.”
