PSG: Al-Khelaïfi misses a huge blow in Barcelona

While PSG continues to establish its dominance in European football, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi seeks to create an empire by buying other clubs with his company Qatar Sports Investments (QSI). The Qatari has just lost the opportunity to settle in Spain.

After acquiring part of the Portuguese club Braga, Qatar Sports Investments continues to want to build its football team, like the City group or Red Bull. When Nasser Al-Khelaïfi learned that Espanyol Barcelona was on sale, the PSG president immediately started negotiations with Chen Yansheng, holder of 99.6% of the Blanquiazules. If Al-Khelaïfi was presented as the favorite to buy the club, in the end, negotiations are still at a standstill and Qatar is gradually moving away from Barcelona. According to information from El Nacional, it is almost impossible to see QSI take over Espanyol Barcelona. Chen Yansheng has already turned to new investors to buy the club he has owned since 2016.

Nasser Al-Khelaïfi doubled by the Americans?

According to Cadena Cope radio reports, the Espanyol Barcelona owner is heading to North America instead to find a buyer. The recent sales of Chelsea, Atalanta Bergamo or Olympique Lyonnais to American businessmen have given ideas to Chen Yansheng who believes he has more chances of better selling the Catalan club to Americans. If for the moment, no name has been revealed, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and Qatar Sports Investments will probably not appreciate being overtaken by Americans, who know little about European football. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi nevertheless hopes to take advantage of the exposure of the World Cup in Qatar to be able to resume negotiations with the Chinese owner and conclude an agreement. QSI seems determined to create a real empire in football in Europe with PSG as the headliner.
