PSG president ‘considering offers’ to sell stake in Ligue 1 giants

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi has admitted he is “considering” offers to sell a stake in the club.

PSG has become one of the most powerful clubs in the world since Al-Khelaïfi led the purchase of the club on behalf of QSI (Qatar Sports Investments) ten years ago.

Recent reports from France claim that a US-based investment fund is preparing a package to buy a 10-15% stake in the club and although he has dismissed any possibility of an outright sale,
Al-Khelaïfi has confirmed he is open to diluting QSI’s ownership of the Ligue 1 champions.

“People always talk about PSG and think we only have money to spend,” he said. “It is not true. We put seventy million in the club. Today it is worth more than 4 billion.

“As I said, we have different buyout offers. It’s a bargain, a great bargain. A buyout offer of 4 billion? Over 4 billion of course.

“We will not sell the club. But why not a small share of the club? We are actually considering different offers.”

PSG are certainly a bit of a money pit for QSI, with L’Equipe reporting that the club’s losses over the past year have been €370 million. That is an increase from the €224.3 million loss they made the previous year.

A sale of between 10-15% would likely bring around €300 million for QSI, but it remains to be seen whether any serious party would consider it a viable investment.
