The Qatari leaders of Paris Saint-Germain have been contacted for a possible takeover of part of the capital club. And they could accept this entry from American investors.
While Qatar is the center of the football planet for a month, Paris Saint-Germain is not abandoned by the Qatari leaders. And we learned it 24 hours ago, the number one club in France is arousing very keen interest from an American investment fund which is ready to acquire 10% of the capital of the PSG for the tidy sum of 300 million euros, the value of the champions of France being estimated at 3 billion euros. On the side of the Emir of Qatar things are clear, the club bought by QSI in 2011 is not for sale, the rumor of a withdrawal of the gas state after the end of the World Cup was completely rejected. But, at this stage in the history of Paris Saint-Germain, the arrival of a new shareholder able to inject funds has not been brushed aside. Far from it even as the sports daily specifies this Sunday.

Indeed, Arnaud Hermant specifies that the officials of Paris Saint-Germain “ are not keen on giving away a small percentage of the club’s capital, and essentially for budgetary reasons. Because even if the PSG marketing is running at full speed, the flocked Messi, Neymar and Mbappé jerseys are selling in the hundreds of thousands and the Parc des Princes is full at every match, the Parisian accounts are in bright red. We thus evoke losses which could exceed 350 million euros for the past season. ” This season, even if management has promised to significantly improve its accounting situation, finances should remain in the red. The arrival of a co-shareholder could help overcome these difficulties “, specifies the journalist of L’Equipe. For the moment, one thing is certain, and that is that Paris Saint-Germain will not be sold in its entirety, but by opening the door to an American investment fund, Nasser Al-Khelaifi could send a first signal concerning a change in economic policy.
