Many Leeds United fans have been reacting to quotes from owner Andrea Radrizzani, who has been discussing potential investment coming into the club.
Quotes from the Italian were relayed by TEAMtalk journalist James Marshment which suggested that Qatar Sports Investments (QSI), a company which already owns Paris Saint Germain, could buy into the Elland Road outfit.
However, Radrizzani also admitted that nothing would happen until the club are in the Premier League.
“What is true is that we [PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi] have a great relationship on a personal level,” said Radrizzani. “There’s a desire to do something together. We’ll evaluate this when we are in the Premier League.”
The Whites are currently in pole position to return to the English top-flight, sitting top of the Championship table after 37 games and seven points ahead of third-placed Fulham (BBC Sport).
Whilst QSI are an extremely wealthy company who have already transformed PSG, allowing them to buy the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the reaction to these quotes from Leeds fans has been varied. Whilst some would love to see them come on board, others are sceptical about the potential investment.
Here is what some had to say about it on Twitter…
I am always an optimist James but honestly if the deal was about to happen we wouldn’t hear about it until it actually happened. I just think it’s a little bit of PR teasing

Nah, that’s never gunna happen. That’s not Leeds. Wots guna hapn is we’ll get promoted wen season re-starts in a yrs time, QSI will come on board & then the resulting economic collapse will wipe away all QSI’s wealth leaving us penniless again. Now that’s more like Leeds. #LUFC

If we’re ever to compete with the financial juggernauts at the top of PL, even though I’d prefer another way, reality is we need a QSI or Red Bull level of investment.
