It’s usually transfer speculation that won’t go away at this time of year, but ongoing talk about potential interest in Leeds United from Qatari Sports Investments rumbles on.
With the most recent speculation linking manager Marcelo Bielsa as having travelled for a meeting with the group alongside Andrea Radrizzani, news did go quiet for a bit with plenty of claims and counterclaims being made in the media but on Monday French outlet Le Parisien gave the rumours another airing and from the translation I’m reading, it contains absolutely no new information and simply rehashes the various bits we’ve already seen.
The lack of any real update in the story certainly wasn’t lost on Leeds United fans as they took to Twitter to lambast the attempt to present old news as something fresh and new and actually worth getting excited about.
In the shirt on the pitch applies to transfers, similar is true of supposed takeovers.
It’s boring mate. It ain’t gonna change anything on the playing side this season anyway so no point worrying about it. What will be will be.????
