Will leave the Parc des Princes and buy the Stade de France as their new home.
The French giants were annoyed that Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo blocked the idea of buying the Parc des Princes.
Since its establishment in 1970, they have used the Parc des Princes as their home stadium.
PSG are desperate to rebuild and expand the 48,000-seater stadium as they hope to compete with Europe’s top sides through the stadium’s increased revenue, but only if they are the true owners of the Parc des Princes
to do it.
Paris planned to invest 500 million euros in renovations, but the attitude of the mayor of Paris forced them to cancel the plan.
PSG are actively exploring other options, which include taking over the 81,000-seat Stade de France in the north of the city.
Built in 1995 for the 1998 World Cup, the stadium is the venue for the French national football and rugby teams, with agreements between the two parties until 2024 and 2025, respectively.
The stadium is owned by the government and is for sale.
Alternatively, PSG could develop a new stadium near the Parc des Princes, or even be forced to move outside the city.
They hope to have a stadium similar to Tottenham’s new White Hart Lane, in other words, Paris’ own exclusive stadium that can promote Messi, Mbappé, and Neymar.
The Parc des Princes was deemed unsuitable for the purpose as the €30m (£26.4m) cost of repairing the roof of the Parisian city-owned stadium is now only paid for by taxpayers.
