Paris Saint-Germain owners Qatar Sports Investments want to continue their presence in football despite the 2022 FIFA World Cup now being over.
QSI’s venture into owning a percentage of another began last October when they purchased nearly 22 percent of Portuguese first-division side Braga. However, PSG’s ownership is now eyeing a minority stake into a Premier League club.
The Times’ Martyn Ziegler reported on Monday that QSI “have ambitious plans” to enter ownership in the Premier League. Ziegler states that any purchase would be as a minority owner.
Qatar Sports Investments have ambitious plans but understand not looking to invest in Man Utd or Liverpool at the moment. Any PL club investment would be a minority stake as no plans to sell PSG.

Additionally, The Times’ reporter rules out QSI buying a stake in Leeds United, Liverpool and Manchester United. Furthermore, he notes that there are no plans for the group to sell PSG.
While not mentioned, it’s unlikely the minority purchases into Manchester City and Newcastle United are not going to happen due to the country’s political disputes, but it can perhaps change.
Nonetheless, a report from The Telegraph speculates that the club QSI can purchase a minority stake in is likely Tottenham Hotspur. Furthermore, the report stated that PSG’s owners could look to buy a 25 percent stake.
Nonetheless, there are other options they can look into to have a presence in the Premier League.
