Paul Robinson has suggested that it could be a good time for the QSI group to invest in Leeds United right now.
Talk of new investment at Elland Road has been rife for a long time now, with Andrea Radrizzani confirming QSI’s interest which could potentially make the club as valuable as Manchester City.
The Italian has also confirmed that he has a close relationship with QSI chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi, and that extra investment could come if Leeds win promotion to the Premier League.
Have Leeds United done these 15 things in the last 10 years?
Of course, football is currently on standby and the public’s safety is undoubtedly the highest priority, with the EFL having been out of action for well over two months now.
But speaking to MOT Leeds News, Robinson has suggested that now could be the right time for QSI to invest in Leeds United, with their promotion fate still hanging in the balance.
He said: “Anybody in any walk of life, if you’re cash-rich you’re a lot richer than you were in terms of purchasing.
“The transfer market is going to come into line with the current financial climate, as will the price of a football club and the investment wanted in a football club.
“The TV rights is a set deal for the Premier League so the financial reward for Leeds getting promoted would be the same you’d hope.
“The transfer market may adjust according to the economy. However, as you’ve seen with Newcastle, buying a football club is not the most straightforward bit of business.
“The financial reward of getting in the Premier League could mean that it’s enough for Radrizzani to get through the first transfer window without any extra investment.
Leeds will be hoping to resume as quickly and as safely as possible as they look to make a long-awaited return to English football’s top-flight.”
The Whites currently lead the way in the Sky Bet Championship table and sit seven points clear of third place ahead of the final nine games of the season, whenever they may be played.
Whether Leeds can afford any distractions any potential takeover would bring is another question.
There is no doubt that the QSI investment would be a huge boost for Leeds as they look to keep their place in the Premier League, if they get there of course.
The funds would be beneficial in helping Bielsa bringing in new players, and it’s obviously exciting when there’s talk of being as rich as someone like Man City.
