PSG Owners Eye Premier League Club Stake

PARIS St-Germain’s owners Qatar Sports Investment (QSI) are exploring the possibility of buying a minority stake in a Premier League club.

PSG president and QSI chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi met with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy in London last week.

Manchester United’s owners the Glazer family have said they are looking for new investment and would also consider selling the club.

Liverpool’s owners have said they “would consider new shareholders”.

However, no specific clubs are being targeted at this stage by QSI, who also have a minority stake in Portuguese side Braga.

And despite the meeting with Levy, it is being stressed that there was no discussion about QSI taking an equity stake in Tottenham.

A full takeover by the Qataris is unlikely as it would require the sale of PSG. European football’s governing body Uefa has rules in place that prevent multi-club ownership.

Under the rules “no individual or legal entity may have control or influence over more than one club” in a Uefa club competition.
