Paris St Germain has been irked by the way Chelsea handled a proposed loan deal for Hakim Ziyech. PSG had wanted the Moroccan midfielder on loan but Chelsea was unwilling to allow the player to move to the Ligue 1 giants as they mounted roadblocks. Ziyech had passed his medical and was waiting in Paris on Tuesday to be unveiled. According to Sky Sports reports, PSG lodged an appeal to the Professional Football League (LFP)’s legal committee, alleging that the Stamford Bridge side had initially sent through the incorrect paperwork after the terms of an agreement had been finalised. When it was flagged, they claim Chelsea sent the right documents twice but without a signature. When the correct version was received, the deadline had already passed.
The LFP met at 10:30am local time on Wednesday morning to study the paperwork and discuss the case. They decided against signing the loan move off. Chelsea have yet to comment on PSG’s version of events with the French giants angered by the administrative gaffes which affected their outgoings, like Ismael Gharbi’s temporary switch to Nice.
