Leeds United owner Andrea Radizani will have to consider selling the club if they fail to win a promotion at the Premiership, Sportsmail understand.
Sources claim that the Italian has now "got in" gambling to provide top-football football and unexpectedly about 200 million pounds.
Without that, we were told that Radrizzani would be difficult to fund another promotional season and that valuable gaming assets would have to be sold.

We understand that Marcello Bielsa's manager pays 3.4 million pounds a year and that the total cost of his staff is 6 million pounds and the contracts are executed by 2020.
However, we can reveal that this summer has breakdown clauses and is likely to leave Bielsa if it does not rise.
Radrizzani may also be forced to sell part or all of his share of 88%. In May last year, he sold a 12 percent stake to 49ers Enterprises, a NFL-related investment company in the San Francisco 49ers, and may have increased their share.
Radrizzani is popular around Elland Road and his club management together with football director Victor Orta and Chief Executive Officer Anguis Kinear are successful. He has funded the club with large cash injections since taking over in 2017, but board members know that the model can not be maintained after this campaign.

It is believed that such financial care is the reason for club policy to postpone the negotiation of key players until the summer, including favorite Matthew Klich and top scorer Kemar Ruf. Each player will have one year left on their current conditions this summer.
But Bielsa has done an excellent job. Currently his team is third in the table, two points on the top with a game in hand and play a stylish, profitable football brand.
But it came at a considerable cost, with his salary three times higher than that of the next highest paid champion.
The consequences of not climbing are clearly expressed to those associated with the club, and insiders are raising concern for CEOs in the days.
Radrizzani pumped £ 14.5m of his own money in Leeds during the 2016-17 season, as revealed by the accounts announced last April, and is believed to have put £ 16m more for the 2017-18 campaign.

It was decided that the level of funding could not continue with the British sports television company Radrizzani, Eleven Sports UK, facing an uncertain future as it is still available only on a desktop, mobile phone or tablet.
Last week it was announced that the streaming service has lost exclusive rights to the games in La Liga. ITV and Premier Sports will see weekly Spanish top flight matches.
That follows from Radizani, revealing to the New York Times in December that "You can not just keep losing money" when asked about the viability of its channel without a pay-TV distributor.
The 44-year-old man confirms that he is considering closing his British business leadership if no resolution can be found.
These broadcasts affected the football club. In January, it became clear that Leeds were not willing to pay large fees for new signatures.

Goalkeeper Kiko Cassilla joined in liberty, and the future move for Dan James fell when Swansea President Hugh Jenkins found that the 1.5 million pound credit fee would not be paid until the summer.
Jenkins pulled the plug and resigned. James, the exciting 21-year-old winger, would join Leeds for 8.5 million pounds in the event of a promotion paid in three installments.
Staying down means Leeds will have to raise funds through sales if no new investments are expected.
Assets such as Klich and Roofe as well as Kalvin Phillips and impressive youngsters such as Jack Clarke and Bailey Peacock-Farrell can be provided.
Peacock-Farrell's 22-year-old goalkeeper also remains one year of his contract this summer. Leeds has been reported to have the opportunity to extend Klich's deal. But we were told that this is not the case.
