It would appear that a possible takeover in Leeds took a step closer after 90 minutes reported that QSIs are stuck in talks with Andrea Radrizzani.
A figure of £ 120 million is said to be the possible price and given the group’s financial power – which also owns the PSG – they are likely to be able to meet that demand.
However, there is still a long way to go before the club changes hands, and according to Phil Hay another interested party may have a say in deciding the fate of the club.
Who would you rather take control of our club?
Athletic’s reporter says 49ers Enterprises – the group that owns San Francisco’s 49ers – have the same chances as QSI in buying clubs, which indicates that Radrizzani will likely discuss matters with them before making a decisive decision.
ER’s message has always been that a 49ers buy-out was as much QSI as possible.

After all, the president of 49ers Enterprises Paraag Marathe sits on the board of Leeds United and reportedly has a 10% stake in our club, so his knowledge of business could give him an edge over the QSI.
That group also has an enormous amount of wealth, with the 49ers in 16th place in the ranking of the richest sports team in the world, and therefore the club could be in good hands regardless of the party.
We hope that the current situation has not discouraged interest, since even if Radrizzani seemed fulfilled in his role as owner, it would be fantastic if we were able to make the most of a promotion possible by bringing quality players to take us to the next level, and this can only happen with greater spending power.
