It would only be a minority investment, but this step is significant. It shows that the owners of Paris Saint-Germain want to invest in a Premier League club, and they are obviously aiming for the high end of the table. As well as Tottenham, Sky Sports add that Liverpool and Manchester United are also looking for new partners.
QSI still involved in football
Is this good news for PSG? Sky Sports think so. Since QSI made a sensational entry into the world of football, many have wondered what would happen to his commitment after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the long-awaited meeting by the gas state. The fact that QSI is selling some of its shares to PSG could send a negative signal.
Conversely, Sky Sports believes it is good news for Paris Saint-Germain to see its owners continue to invest in the sport. After taking some positions in Portugal, within the Braga club, the QSI galaxy could expand into England. But PSG would remain his flagship.
