PSG’s owners from Qatar are thinking about buying an English club.

Investment company Qatar Sports Investments has owned PSG since 2011. During this time the club from Parc des Princes has turned into a real European football grandee having first-rate stars like Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.

However, now, QSI, headed by PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, is thinking about expanding its football portfolio – following the example of the City Football Group – Manchester City’s subsidiary.

According to The Telegraph, purchasing a club from the Championship is the most likely scenario for the Qataris. Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers are among those who can get the investment.

We add that UEFA rules prohibit two clubs that directly or indirectly belong to the same owner to participate in the Champions League or the Europa League. If this problem ever occurs before QSI, the Qatari investors may have to make some restructuring.
