Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi stated on Thursday that Paris St. Germain appears to be planning to depart the Parc des Princes after the City declared the stadium was not for sale.
“Saying that the stadium is no longer for sale is far too simple.
“We have spent years trying to purchase what we know we desire.
“We now have clarity on our goals, so it’s easier for us. For us, it’s over.
” At a UEFA Congress, Al-Khelaifi told reporters, “We want to move out of the Parc.”
After Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo declared that the stadium was not for sale—a stance that City Hall reaffirmed on Tuesday—PSG stated that they would look into other options last year.
“A sale is not ideal, as it would be an irreversible decision… For this reason, we must now rule out selling the Parc.
Pierre Rabadan, the deputy mayor of sports for Paris, stated on Tuesday that “we don’t want to sell off Paris’ legacy.”
Four years after the club was established, in 1974, PSG moved into the Parc des Princes.
