Last Saturday, the newspaper The Team released major information on Paris Saint-Germain. According to the revelations of the sports daily, an American investment fund has shown its interest in a minority takeover of the capital club, up to 10-15%. As a reminder, the current leader of Ligue 1 has been 100% owned since 2011 by Qatar Sports Investments, the Doha-based company then taking over from Colony Capital.

What about this file? As the 2022 World Cup has just started on his soil, and his Qatar’s defeat on Sunday against Ecuador in the opening match (0-2), Parisian president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi took stock. Asked by TalkSPORTin statements relayed by The Parisian and taken over by us, the boss of Paris Saint-Germain has ruled out a total withdrawal from QSI. On the other hand, the Qatari reveals that a percentage of the club can be sold.

“We are considering different offers”

“People always talk about PSG, thinking that we only have money to spend. It’s not true. As I said, we have different buyout offers. It’s a bargain, a fantastic bargain. A buyout offer of 4 billion? Over 4 billion, of course. But we are not going to sell the club. But why not a small percentage of the club. We are considering different offers actually.” Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, on the other hand, gave no details on the identity of the company likely to land in the capital.

Under the leadership of Qatar Sports Investments, Paris Saint-Germain has notably won eight French championship titles and once reached the final of the Champions League, a C1 that Christophe Galtier’s players will try to win provided they pass first the Bayern Munich hurdle, in the round of 16.
