The summer is always a busy time in the world of football, bringing news of new takeovers and transfers to millions of fans who are always interested in every detail of the next season.

The shareholding organization Qatar Sports Investments, which is the current owner of the French team Paris Saint-Germain F.C, shows interest to buy the British team Leeds from the Italian owner Andrea Radrizzani.

The reports say that the Italian businessman Radrizzani is going to meet the billionaire president of Qatar Sports Investments Nasser Al-Khelaifi in Doha for advanced talks about the possible purchase of the team that lost the Derby in the play-off semi-finals last year.

It is rumored that Leeds are in talks with as much as six other potential investors besides 45-year-old Al-Khelaifi, who bought PSG eight years ago in 2011 and became famous around the world for spending large amounts of money on star players.

A deal like this would give SGO owners a direct route into English football, something they’ve craved for a long time now. The French publication L’Equipe claims that the QSI has been in negotiations with Leeds for months now and that they have also set eyes on Nottingham Forest as another possible target.
