The Sun’s Alan Nixon has been quite sceptical about the reported potential investment in Leeds United from Qatari Sports Investments.
Like any good journalist, Nixon has tried to figure out the motives behind the PSG owners attempting to buy a share of the Yorkshire club, but as of yet, he can’t figure out why they would want to do a deal with Andrea Radrizzani.
The speculation has dumbfounded the Scot as he can’t quite wrap his head around why the Qataris would want to be involved with Leeds United.
A series of tweets have been put out by the writer questioning the speculation.
“I don’t see why they would only want 10 per cent. What do they pay for that? Not that much. Leeds need money to get promoted.” Nixon tweeted.
He also posted a number of times questioning what the owners get out of the reported deal.
“Don’t see what’s in it for the Qataris if it’s only 10 per cent. A few quid for Leeds. Fair enough. But what are Qataris getting for their cash,” he Wrote.
“Been a meeting. May be a deal. Don’t know what’s in this for PSG. Odd.” he Said in a separate post.
With all the speculation surrounding the potential QSI investment in the Yorkshire club, many people have failed to ask these types of questions.
The men in charge of the financial group are businessmen at heart, and for them to want to buy just 10% of a football club is baffling.
Money seems to be no object to the potential investors, but they already have a club to match their ambitions in the footballing world. Buying a stake in a second division English side doesn’t appear to make a lot of sense.
Perhaps we will find out more if and when a deal is concluded, but for now, Nixon’s scepticism is well-founded.
