Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani eases sale claims

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has eased recent comments made about a possible club sale.

The Italian businessman revealed in an interview that he had been approached 'by more than 20 parties' and that three of them were of particular interest.

In response to the article, published on Monday, Radrizzani has issued a further statement, claiming he is not actively seeking investment at this moment.

"Because of the job we have done in the last two or three years, we have attracted a lot of interest," said Radrizzani, who will be heavily involved in the club's centenary celebrations on Thursday.

"Obviously the club has modernised on a lot of levels, which is shown by our revenues, which have increased a lot to close to £50million.

"Our attendance is the top of the league, the club has modernised the media (department), we have partnerships with Amazon, Wish and Deliveroo - big corporate companies are starting to work with Leeds and before my arrival this was impossible even to think.

"We have to be proud of the club and the fact we are attractive to potential investors.

"When and if we will open discussions is completely is another story.

"It depends on the right moment, a moment where I believe we need support to build the club bigger than what we could do with our own resources."
