There is information that PSG is going to appeal against the unsuccessful loan of the Moroccan national team player Hakim Ziyech after the Blues failed to submit the necessary documents three times.
How was everything?
The Ligue 1 side apparently wrapped it all up with the player agreeing to the move and has already flown to Paris to complete his medical. However, it has since been seen that the Blues failed to file the required paperwork before the transfer deadline on Tuesday, with a Paris Saint-Germain source calling the situation a class A circus.
The Blues sent the wrong documentation a total of three times, reportedly with the correct version arriving at midnight local time (23:00 UK time) too late for a deal. Paris Saint-Germain are now set to appeal to the Football Profession League (LFP), although given their ruthlessness in similar cases in the past, it is considered unlikely that the situation will be resolved.
As a result, despite flying to Paris to complete the move, Ziyech will have to return to the Blues for the remainder of the season. Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech had a number of admirers such as the Rossoneri, the Giallorossi, RB Leipzig and several Premier League clubs, but specifically chose Paris Saint-Germain as his next destination. The Moroccan international’s playing time in West London is likely to be minimal given the Blues’ January spending capped by a UK record transfer fee for Benfica’s Argentine midfielder Enzo Fernandes on Tuesday at 11 am.
A little about the topic
Barring an unlikely successful appeal, the winger will land in London and be forced to play the remainder of the 2022-23 season, unlike former Chelsea teammate Jorginho, who completed the Gunners’ league-leading move.
Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech will not join PSG on loan after they failed to get approval from the French league, leaving him stranded at the Blues.
The legal committee of the French Football Profession League (LFP) met on Wednesday to discuss the move, but they decided not to approve a loan deal for Morocco. Paris Saint-Germain and the Blues reached an agreement late on the deadline day, but the move collapsed due to a mishandling of paperwork.
The Blues is believed to have sent the wrong documents as many as three times, reportedly earlier on Wednesday, causing Paris Saint-Germain to launch an appeal that has now been dismissed. As a result, Morocco national team player Hakim Ziyech, who flew to Paris to complete his treatment and complete the move, found himself stranded in west London. The Blues winger has been left with no promises of playing time given the many offensive reinforcements brought in by Todd Boehley this winter, no more than Argentinian player Enzo Fernandez’s British record pass at 11 o’clock Tuesday.
What will happen after this?
While Morocco midfielder Hakim Ziyech will be forced to play the rest of the 2022-23 campaign with the Blues, Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier will be without his long-awaited striker signing, which could prove costly given good player Neymar’s recent injury woes.
