Leeds United have recently been linked with a potential takeover from PSG owners, Qatar Sports Investments according to a report from french media outlet, L’Equipe.
This news came after Leeds owner, Andrea Radrizzani was in discussions with QSI’s chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, although it wasn’t clear as to what discussions took place.
But BBC Sport journalist, Dan Roan has revealed that Radrizzani has no intention of selling Leeds anytime soon.
Leeds sources insist that while 6 parties have approached LUFC for potential investment, the QSI story is being exaggerated and AR has no intention to sell at this stage

The journalist also claims that the story has been exaggerated, which has previously got the Elland Road faithful dreaming of a return to the Premier League.
Leeds could certainly benefit from potential investment, with the Whites narrowly missing out on promotion back into the top-flight after they were beaten by Derby County in their play-off semi-final.
It means that Marcelo Bielsa’s side are preparing for another season in the Championship, much to the frustration of the Leeds supporters.
A potential partnership between PSG and Leeds has been rumoured to have been on the agenda, although it remains to be seen as to what discussions were held between the two parties.
Bielsa will be keen to make new signings ahead of next season, especially with potential player departures on the cards as well.
It’s set to be an interesting couple of months for Leeds, and Radrizzani’s stance could easily change if QSI formally submit an offer to purchase the Yorkshire-based club.
It won’t be the last we hear of this rumour.
It does make you question as to what discussions took place in the first place then, and I think a potential partnership deal might have been spoken about.
Leeds could certainly benefit from that, as they could have some talented young players joining the club ahead of next season.
