Leeds United To Become PSG’s 'Feeder Club' As Takeover To Happen In ‘Coming Weeks Or Months’

Leeds United could be 'weeks or months' away from a major takeover as Paris Saint-Germain owners Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) have ramped up talks with the club.

According to French newspaper Le Parisien, the Championship side would be turned into the French champions' 'little brother' and a takeover isn't far off from being finalised.

And QSI chairman and PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is deeply involved in the discussions between the two parties.

Le Parisien's source, who is 'close to the ongoing negotiations,' has claimed that QSI is 'getting closer' to completing their buyout of Leeds.

But there has reportedly been careful consideration taken in the Whites becoming PSG's new 'feeder club.'

The QSI picked Leeds as their main choice after 'studying perspectives of entry in the English market over the past two years.'

And it's believed that the acquisition of the club won't come cheap, with Le Parisien claiming that it could be 'far superior' than the €79m QSI splashed out on PSG in 2011.

Leeds came close to securing Premier League promotion last season and picked up a 1-0 win over Derby County in the first-leg semi-final playoffs.

But Leeds would fall short after they lost 4-2 in the return leg to Frank Lampard's side.

Leeds' failure in Premier League promotion hasn't put the QSI off from snapping up Andrea Radrizzani's shares in the club.

And the QSI are committed in helping to turn Leeds' fortunes around and become a major player in the Premier League scene.

Pushing Leeds to the Premier League and challenging for a spot in the Champions League would be lucrative for the QSI, who would want to increase the exposure the club receives.

Should the QSI purchase Leeds?
