Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani will have to consider selling the club if they fail to win promotion this season, according to reports.
Radrizzani is a popular figure at Elland Road, having invested heavily into the club since taking charge in 2017.
However, the Italian will find it difficult to fund Leeds without the revenue of Premier League football next season and failure to go up this season may also lead to manager Marcelo Bielsa, who is contracted to the club until 2020 on a deal worth £3.4m per year, leaving the club.
Radrizzani purchased Leeds from the hugely unpopular and controversial Massimo Cellino two years ago, and went on to buy Elland Road in June 2017, making the stadium a property of Leeds United
He has since invested over £30m, with notable signings including Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla in January. But this investment will not be able to continue if they do not receive the reported £200m windfall earned by gaining promotion this season.
Another season in the Championship may also lead to star players such as Kemar Roofe, Mateusz Klich and Kalvin Phillips being sold to raise funds, as well as exciting youth prospects such as Jack Clarke.
