Italian outlet Inter Live claim that Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has withdrawn from the race to buy Inter Milan – with previous reports claiming that the current majority shareholder at Leeds was keen on a move for Inter.

Radrizzani and his ASER Group remain in control of Leeds – with a 56% stake in the club. But he is widely expected to sell Leeds to the San Francisco 49ers, who currently boast a 44% stake. There is a clause to a do a deal in 2024.

But, it is widely expected that something could materialise this summer – but relegation to the Championship may change that. Certainly, if the 49ers decide to buy Leeds after relegation, the price of the club will drastically drop.

Bloomberg claim that Radrizzani holds an interest in Inter, reporting last month that he was considering a move to buy the Nerazzurri. It is believed Simone Inzaghi’s side would cost around £883million, a huge amount of cash.

Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani withdraws from race to buy Inter Milan

Inter will be taken over soon given their financial restraints but it seems clear that it will not be Radrizzani. A man under pressure to sell at Leeds, even though it is more than likely we go down – and he would make a big loss.

It might be that given Leeds are close to relegation this season, he may find that losing out on top dollar for our club hinders any chance he has of buying Inter. As things stand, Leeds have three games to save their top-tier status.

The first comes against Newcastle on Saturday, a home clash against the high-flying Toon who have all but secured their third-place finish in the Premier League. They have something to play for, as do Leeds. Big Sam needs a shock.
