While we learned on Saturday that American investors were ready to invest 300 million euros or more to acquire 10 to 15% of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al-Khelaifi confirmed that he was not deaf to this offer. ” People always talk about PSG believing that we only have money to spend. It’s not true. All was not perfect, it must be recognized. We bought the club for 70 million in 2011. And today it is worth more than 4 billion euros (…) We have received various buyout offers. It’s a bargain, a fantastic bargain. If we received a buyout offer of 4 billion? Over 4 billion, yes of course. But we are not going to sell PSG. But why not a small percentage of the club. We are thinking about different offers actually “Said the president of PSG in remarks relayed by CulturePSG.com. A statement that opens the door to many speculations, because even if he firmly rejects the total sale of Paris Saint-Germain, the arrival in the capital of an investor capable of spending so much money is not trivial.
