Paraag Marathe, the vice-chairman of 49ers Enterprises, was recently in Yorkshire for talks with Leeds United board members about January transfer plans.
That’s according to Leeds Live, who are reporting that the major figure’s group is likely to invest in January to help manager Jesse Marsch after a rocky early part of the season for the American.
There was a lot of pressure on the Leeds boss recently, but back-to-back wins, which included a monumental victory over Liverpool at Anfield, eased that and the Yorkshire side moved up to 12th in the league table.
There has been much speculation as to whether the 49ers would become the majority shareholder in the club, but at this point they are aware that the upcoming January window is important for Los Blancos as it could keep them out of a potential relegation battle.
Leeds need bodies in some key areas, such as a striker and left-back, and that could be a huge boost for Marsch’s side.
