PSG angry with Chelsea for sabotaging Ziyech’s deadline day transfer
French giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are ‘absolutely furious’ with Chelsea over the collapse of Hakim Ziyech’s loan move.
The 29-year-old had looked primed to join the Ligue 1 champions until the end of the season and was in the French capital on Tuesday night ready to put the finishing touches to the deal.
But a number of mistakes regarding the paperwork needed to complete the deal, mistakes that PSG have pointed the accusing finger at Chelsea for, prevented Ziyech from sealing a move away from Stamford Bridge.

PSG lodged an appeal to the Professional Football League (LFP)’s legal committee in a bid to push through the move, alleging Chelsea’s failure to twice sign the documents had contributed to the third submission being sent through after the 11 pm 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 reveal the Parisians are ‘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’.
