PSG: farewell to the Parc des Princes? – Soccer

Despite their desire to sell a minority part, the leaders of QSI are still thinking big for Paris Saint-Germain. A desire to expand again and again which could push them to leave the Parc des Princes.

PSG wants to stay at the Parc des Princes, but…

In just over ten years, Paris Saint-Germain have gone from a disappointing club capable of hitting the world-famous national scene, attracting the biggest stars of the planet. An expansion authorized with the arrival of QSI in 2011.

And even if the leaders of the head of the capital club are ready to sell a minority part (10-15%) to an American investment fund, the desire to expand again and again remains intact. A wish that opens the question of a thorny file: that of the stadium.

The town hall of Paris too greedy

For several years, Nasser Al Khelafi has never hidden his desire to buy the Parc des Princes, property of the city of Paris, for which it has a 30-year long lease signed in December 2013, i.e. until… 2043. However, the boss of the reigning French champion comes up against the greediness of town hall officials. We would have found a reasonable agreement but today the council of Paris is on another plant specify a source close to Paris SG with L’Equipe.

While the Parisian leaders have already invested 85 million euros to carry out the renovations of the enclosure within the framework of Euro 2016, the Paris council is awaiting a proposal of 350 million euros to sell the Parc des Princes. A check judged far too high by Al Khelafi himself. Paris deserves a better stadium. My first option is not to manage. But the city of Paris encourages us to move the 49-year-old said in an interview with Bloomberg.

PSG at the Stade de France?

A position all the more damaging for the town hall of Paris as Qatari investors are ready to pay up to 500 million euros at the Parc des Princes in the event of access to the property. Money that could be used elsewhere since two sites are being studied for the construction of a possible new stadium: Poissy (Yvelines), next to the future training center, or at the Saint-Cloud racecourse, Rueil -Malmaison (Hauts-de-Seine).

There is a last option which could be less expensive: to buy the Stade de France. While PSG wants to add 12,000 seats to the Parc des Princes, to increase it from 48,000 to 60,000 seats, the Saint-Denis base enclosure has a capacity of 80,000 seats. The state is also open to this possibility to rid of a somewhat laudable enclosure. An opportunity that the current leader of Ligue 1 could seize if the town hall of Paris abuses its patience.
