Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelafi confirmed on Monday that shareholder Qatar Sports Investments has no intention of exiting after the 2022 World Cup. On the other hand, a small percentage of the club could well be sold !
Nasser Al-Khelafi reaffirms QSI’s commitment.
The scenario has been fueling fantasies for years. After having bought Paris Saint-Germain in 2011 in order to improve the image of the Emirate, in particular with a view to the organization of the 2022 World Cup, will Qatar Sports Investments stop the costs and resell the ‘curie the outcome of the competition?
Indeed, even if QSI has managed to hoist PSG among the best European clubs, the main objective – to win the Champions League – has not been achieved and Doha could therefore decide to turn off the tap.
While L’Equipe claimed on Saturday that an American investment fund contacted the shareholder of PSG in order to buy between 10 and 15% of the shares of the club of the capital, the Parisian president Nasser Al-Khelafi came out of silence this Monday to TalkSport media. The opportunity for the Qatari to make two big announcements.
People always talk about PSG, thinking that we only have money to spend. It’s not true. We put seventy million into the club. Today it is worth more than 4 billion. As I said, we have different buyout offersfirst revealed the leader, before confirming his long-term commitment. 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 thinking about the different offers actually.
A disengagement is not relevant
Clearly, Al-Khelafi assures that a withdrawal from QSI after the World Cup is not on the agenda, which should reassure Parisian supporters. On the other hand, the Qataris are not opposed to a small opening of the capital, which should amount to an amount between 300 and 450 million euros for 10 15% of the shares. Dj be a mini-revolution at PSG…
