Paris Saint-Germain considers leaving for a new stadium potentially to France’s national stadium. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said in an interview that they deserve a better stadium than the Parc des Princes. The team now features megastars like Messi, Mbappe, and Neymar. Thus the current stadium has not have enough seats for its spectators.
PSG president is already looking for potential investors and Manchester United as well as Liverpool are also in the line.
Paris Saint-Germain has played at their current stadium since 1974. The stadium has a long history and they also featured 1938 FIFA World Cup games hosting the opening match. Khelaifi has stated that the club has been in talks with the land owner but they are not helpful in improving the facility for a couple of years.
PSG BOSS AL-KHELAIFI’S STATEMENT ON THE ISSUE
“My first option is we don’t move. But the city of Paris is pushing us to move.
We’ve spent 70 million euros upgrading the Parc des Princes but it’s not our stadium”
Without disclosing more details he said that the team has three other options if it decides not to stay. He also stated that the club has offered to purchase it but the city wanted way more money. He said the need to improve the stadium facilities are as per the UEFA rules which restrict the clubs to spend more money than they earn.
Hence Naseer Al-Khelaifi is looking to buy the national stadium of 80,000 capacity which will resolve the spectator issue. Hence gain in income and more spending for better facilities.
PSG is set to earn 700 million euros in revenue at the end of the season beating Manchester City’s revenue of 613 million euros. Now whether they venture for a new home is what to look forward to.
