The presence of the Qatari emir (Emir of Qatar) comes amid PSG supporters’ concerns about Qatar’s reported bid to acquire Manchester United.

Private wealth management funds in Qatar are reportedly supporting QIA’s proposed acquisition. Despite PSG fans’ concerns, UEFA has already approved a potential Qatari investment in Manchester United, with no negative impact on the Parisian club.
PSG’s owners QSI are now not showing any interest in acquiring an English club. Despite reports linking the PSG owners to a move for Tottenham Hotspur, and then Manchester United.
