PSG ‘extremely upset’ with Chelsea over Hakim Ziyech loan move collapse
Paris Saint-Germain ‘absolutely furious’ with Chelsea following the failure of the Hakim Ziyech loan deal.
According to reports, PSG are ‘absolutely furious’ with Chelsea over the collapse of Hakim Ziyech’s loan move.
The 29-year-old was in Paris on Tuesday night prepared to finalize the agreement and had appeared set to join the Ligue 1 winners until the end of the season.
Ziyech was close to leaving Stamford Bridge, but a string of errors with the paperwork required to finalize the deal — errors for which PSG has blamed Chelsea — prevented him from doing so.
In an effort to expedite the transaction, PSG filed an appeal with the Legal Committee of the Professional Football League (LFP). They claimed that Chelsea’s failure to sign the documents twice was a factor in the third submission arriving beyond the 11 p.m. deadline.
But the LFP refused to grant Ziyech’s loan move on Wednesday morning after studying the evidence presented to them, leaving the player to return to Chelsea alongside a glut of new signings drafted in to replace him.

Sources close to PSG have confirmed that the club are ‘bouncing’ and ‘absolutely furious’ at how Chelsea have conducted themselves, sensationally adding the Blues ‘act like the biggest club in the world when buying players, shame they don’t when it is a player moving the other way’.
Chelsea splashed the dough on pricey signings throughout the whole of the January transfer window as Todd Boehly attempts to inject fresh quality into Graham Potter’s underperforming team.
In the waning moments of the window, a British record transfer for Enzo Fernandez of Benfica was approved. Significant sums of money were also spent earlier in January on Mykhailo Mudryk, Benoit Badiashile, Noni Madueke, and Malo Gusto.
Interestingly enough, Chelsea did not lose any players, which gives Potter a difficult time choosing which three players to add to his Champions League team for the upcoming season.
The Blues are currently 10th in the Premier League, some 21 points adrift of leaders Arsenal who also have a game in hand, and face Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
