Nasser Al-Khelaifi is already a household name in the world of football, as PSG owner caused a revolution in the European transfer market recently.

However, Al-Khelaifi’s appetites are growing with each day.

Khelaifi established PSG as one of Europe’s most dominant forces. However, the Qatari owner is adamant about further making his mark in football.

The next target is the English market and Leeds United. Premier League is far ahead of Ligue 1 in terms of coverage and popularity.

This enticed Al-Khelaifi to start negotiating with the current club owner, Andrea Radrizzani, according to The Times.

Radrizzani spoke public about the negotiations, saying:

“I have been approached by more than 20 parties and I have selected these three.

“The option of Qatar Sports Investment and Nasser — first of all they are friends, we have had a good relationship for a long time.

“Secondly, they have the possibility to bring this club to compete with Manchester City, so for the fans that could be a fantastic opportunity.”

It is reported by L’Equipe that PSG’s ownership group values Leeds between €50 million and €70 million.
