Paris Saint Germain want to hurt Barcelona by buying one of their biggest rivals in La Liga


Owners of Paris Saint-Germain want to purchase Espanyol of La Liga in order to harm Barcelona.

Spanish news agency claims that PSG want to purchase Espanyol and transform them into a team that can compete with Barcelona and eclipse the Camp Nou club.

According to reports, there have been rising tensions between the two top soccer teams since the Parc des Princes club acquired Brazilian sensation Neymar in 2017.

The already strained relationship between the two clubs did not get any better with Lionel Messi‘s free transfer from Barcelona to PSG.

PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi frequently made fun of the La Liga juggernaut’s seeming financial difficulties throughout the summer. He was sceptical about the club’s summer season.

PSG Owner Al Khelaifi said to Politico: “Is it fair? No, it’s not fair. Is it legal? I’m not sure. UEFA, of course, has its own regulations. I’m sure they’re going to look at everything.” 

There are now rumours that PSG’s owners have their eyes on Barcelona’s regional rivals Espanyol.

In order to create a team that eclipses the Blaugrana, PSG owner Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who is also the Emir of Qatar, wants to acquire Espanyol.

Rastar Group, a Chinese toy business, currently owns Espanyol. The club is allegedly being poorly run, and PSG believes this is the ideal time to convince the owners to sell.

The PSG executives have already instructed Al Khelaifi to begin talks with the Spanish team about a potential takeover.

Espanyol is currently in 17th place in the La Liga standings and is only safe from the drop on goal differential. Espanyol have so far recorded one win, one tie, and four losses in the 22/23 season.

They feature ex-Premier League striker Joselu and former Barcelona striker Martin Braithwaite among their ranks.
