Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani attends PSG game as guest of Nasser Al-Khelaifi amid suggestions QSI will make investment in Elland Road side
- Andrea Radrizzani previously admitted there is talk over investment from QSI
- He was spotted at PSG’s match against Club Bruges on Wednesday evening
- It is thought that further discussions will take place over a possible deal
Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has been pictured at PSG’s game against Club Bruges amid talk of a Qatari investment in the Elland Road side.
Radrizzani was spotted alongside Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who hosted the Italian. Al-Khelaifi is the PSG president and is also responsible for running the state-owned Qatar Sports Investment (QSI).
Recent reports in France suggested that takeover talks could ‘accelerate’ between the two parties in the past few days and it is thought that there were planned discussions between the pair.

Radrizzani has previously suggested he was considering an offer from QSI to put Leeds on a footing with Manchester City.
According to the Times, QSI view Leeds as a possible long-term investment and could buy a minority stake with a view to purchasing the club outright in the future.
While there are UEFA rules against two clubs with the same owners meeting in a competition, it would likely take Leeds years to come up against PSG in the Champions League.
L’Equipe reported earlier in the week that QSI have valued Leeds at between £50million and £70m.
There is also interest in Leeds from a wealthy fan of the club who is based in the United States and the owner of a club in Italy.
Radrizzani has recently admitted that he has been discussing a deal with Qatar-funded QSI
