The rag has been burning for a while between PSG and the town hall of Paris. The club wants to buy the Parc des Princes to be able to enlarge it and make it part of its heritage. Problem, the town hall refuses to sell it, especially since according to the elected officials, a ridiculous first offer was proposed by the Ile-de-France management. We were talking about a figure of 40 to 50 M€. “The Park is worth less than Paredes?” preferred to irony the first deputy mayor of Paris, Emmanuel Grégoire. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi then brandished the threat of leaving the historic bastion, either to move to the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, or by building a new enclosure. This does not seem to scare the city councilor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, who took the floor to discuss this file in Telematin this Thursday from France 2. “I understand of course the economy of a club of this level in which the ownership of the stadium is part of the economic equation. I hear it but the Parc des Princes is definitely not for sale. On the other hand, of course that with my club, because it is my club PSG, and its President (Nasser Al-Khelaïfi), we have to talk to each other. »
She wants to reinstate a dialogue that has been cut off since these months of tension and does not seem really worried about the risks of a move from PSG. “You know, I don’t think there are a lot of B plans” she retorts, while the idea of the Stade de France would please the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron. “I wish him good luck in selling the Stade de France. This is an assumption often mentioned in the media but I think it is not a reasonable assumption. The Stade de France must host more than competitions linked to a single club. continues Hidalgo before concluding. “I think we have to get out of this situation. I like this club, I want PSG to be able to prosper. If there is work to be done, it must be done. I will accompany this work as best as I can because I care about this team and its performance. For the rest, it’s discussion that we must have in a reasonable way between reasonable people. » The message is sent to the management of the capital club.
