Present in Doha to attend the World Cup, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi multiplies the declarations of shock concerning the future of Paris Saint-Germain. After indicating that QSI was ready to sell shares in the capital club, the president of the Rouge et Bleu returned to one of the hot issues of PSG’s Qatari version: the renovation of the Parc des Princes.
As a reminder, the Parisian management wishes to increase the capacity of its lair, but the Paris town hall is not very cooperative and above all very greedy. While PSG has already spent €85 million to renovate its enclosure as part of Euro 2016 organized in France, The Team claims that the Parisian town hall is asking for no less than €385 million to sell its emblematic stadium! An amount deemed unrealistic by the Qatari management, which would be willing to invest €500 million for the Park if it owned it.
PSG has identified 2 other sites
Asked by BloombergNAK therefore indicated that PSG could leave their stadium if the situation remained maintained. “Paris deserves a better stadium. My first option is not to move. But the city of Paris encourages us to move”, he said, before specifying one of the solutions which would be to buy the Stade de France. An option that would be to the liking of the state, which is seeking to sell a less than commendable stadium.
Al-Khelaïfi has in any case made it known that he “consider very specifically to make an offer”. The Team adds however that sources inside QSI say that a third possibility also exists, namely to build a new stadium elsewhere. “On two identified sites”, says the newspaper. One of the two sites would be in Poissy, where PSG currently integrated its training center, while the second site would be located at the Saint-Cloud racecourse. This is called putting a lot of pressure on the City of Paris.
