Leeds’ takeover by California-based 49ers Enterprises – who already own a 44% stake in the club – could be completed THIS WEEK as they edge close to an agreement with chairman Andrea Radrizzani
- Leeds have been holding talks with the 49ers Enterprises about a takeover
- Talks went well on Monday and the two parties are closing in on an agreement
- The 49ers value the club at around £170m, and a deal may be finalised this week
Leeds United and the 49ers Enterprises are inching closer to a takeover agreement after productive talks on Monday.
It is hoped a resolution could be reached before the end of this week with the 49ers valuing the club closer to £170million following relegation to the Championship.
Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani apologised to supporters following their drop from the Premier League and said there was a need for change. He has since seen his Aser Company consortium complete a successful takeover of Italian side Sampdoria.
That is understood to have been a significant step, indicating that he was still willing to pass over control of Leeds to the 49ers Enterprises who already owned a 44 percent stake in the club.
Leeds have been sounding out candidates to succeed Sam Allardyce as manager and want to appoint a new director of football to fill the void left by Victor Orta’s departure.
Those appointments will proceed once the takeover is ratified in the coming days.
