Leeds United: Whites fans react to update on investment reports

It has been an action-packed few weeks at Elland Road, hasn’t it Leeds fans?

After crashing out of the play-offs on May 15th to Derby County, rumours have been continuously swirling around West Yorkshire about Marcelo Bielsa’s future with the Whites.

Yet despite the Argentine finally putting pen to paper on a new deal earlier today, he will be desperately hoping that chairman Andrea Radrizzani can give him the financial assurance needed this summer.

Therefore, the 63-year-old may be somewhat concerned about the latest news surrounding a possible take-over.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Radrizzani is reportedly unwilling to negotiate with Nasser Al-Kelaifi over the possibility of selling his controlling share in the club.

Head of the Qatar Sports Investment group which already owns Paris Saint-Germain, Al-Kelaifi would undoubtedly be able to give Bielsa the funds needed to bolster his squad in the transfer market if he can agree a fee for the Whites over the coming weeks.

Yet with Radrizzani re-enforcing his intentions of staying at the club for the foreseeable future, some Leeds fans took to social media to react to journalist Phil Hay’s tweet on the current situation at Elland Road.

If Radrizzani does not alter his current position, it would not be at all surprising if Bielsa cannot repeat last season’s miracles next year due to the lack of backing from his chairman.
