PSG 'are left FUMING with Chelsea over Hakim Ziyech move

Livid PSG brand Chelsea and the French league’s handling of their Hakim Ziyech move a ‘CIRCUS’ after the Blues ‘sent the wrong paperwork THREE times and a computer glitch’ put the deal at risk

  • Hakim Ziyech arrived in Paris for a medical with PSG but the move was botched 
  • There were major problems after important paperwork was sent off late
  • PSG are furious with Chelsea for sending the wrong documentation three times 

PSG have been left infuriated with Chelsea after the club sent over the wrong documentation for Hakim Ziyech’s move three times – describing the situation as a ‘class A circus’ with the deal at risk of collapse.

Ziyech looked set to seal an exit on loan before serious problems emerged, with the contracts submitted too late, despite the player already arriving in Paris for a medical. 

With the move now in serious jeopardy as PSG prepare to appeal in order to get the deal over the line, they have pointed the blame at Chelsea, according to L’Equipe, and are said to be fuming after the club submitted incorrect documents on a number of occasions.

Hakim Ziyech’s loan move to PSG has hit a snag after an issue with the paperwork

PSG – led by president Nasser Al-Khelaifi (L) and manager Christophe Galtier (R) are said to be fuming with Chelsea after sending the wrong documentation three times 

The expectation is that it will be difficult for the LFP – France’s governing body – to respond favourably to PSG’s request, although the organisation have also been embroiled in the fiasco. 

The report adds that the LFP also had an issue on deadline day as their computer systems experienced a breakdown late on Tuesday evening – which may play a factor in PSG’s appeal being successful. 

The Ligue 1 giants have described Chelsea’s handling of the situation as a ‘class A circus’, a source told the Athletic. 

Reports in France previously claimed the Blues were being ‘greedy’ in their demands over Ziyech as he tried to push through the switch. 

PSG had spent January seeking out talented dribblers to improve the team – targeting Lyon’s Rayan Cherki and Zenit star Malcom before the opportunity to sign Ziyech emerged, the report claimed.

Chelsea, headed up by owner Todd Boehly, have been accused of creating a ‘class A circus’ after failing to get Ziyech’s loan over the line  

Club chiefs were confident about getting the deal done and ‘everything seemed certain’, it added, especially after Ziyech arrived for his medical – before the move later started to break down in the evening.  

Sportsmail has approached Chelsea for comment.

The former Ajax winger has endured a miserable two-and-a-half year spell at Stamford Bridge and on Monday travelled to Paris in a bid to seal a move to the French titans. 

Despite starring for Morocco in their remarkable run to the World Cup semi-finals – becoming the first African side to do so – Ziyech has continued to struggle at Chelsea this season after a poor first term. 

Ziyech is yet to score in all competitions this season for Chelsea and has only one assist

If he does manage to join the Parc des Princes, he would reunite with compatriot Achraf Hakimi, who was equally key in their nation’s run to the last four of the World Cup. 

With Chelsea bringing in the likes of Mykhailo Mudryk, Joao Felix and Noni Madueke this month, Graham Potter will be keen to offload several attacking players that are likely to be losing their place in the side. 

Ziyech has already averaged fewer than 45 minutes a game in his 10 appearances for the Blues in the league, and is yet to score in all competitions, assisting just once.
