Football Transfer News: This Is The Reason Why Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech Couldn’t Join PSG
Hakim Ziyech’s move from Chelsea to PSG fell apart in the final hours of the January 2023 transfer window, and here is why.
A loan move for Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea FC to PSG was reportedly said to be in the works on the final days of the January 2023 transfer window, but a shocking turn of events saw the deal fall apart on the 31st of January 2023.
Many have wondered why the deal had not been completed in time, and reports from sports journalists indicate that the final paper submission was not made early enough to make the loan move possible. It was reported that Chelsea had sent unsigned documents to PSG twice, thereby hindering the speedy completion of the loan move.
Daily Mail UK reported:
Chelsea forward Hakim Ziyech’s botched move to Paris-Saint Germain has officially been called off after the French football authorities rejected an appeal to ratify the transfer following its dramatic collapse – leaving the forward ‘upset’.
The deal for Ziyech to join PSG that was fraught with difficulties throughout the entire day, but looked to finally be on track just hours before the 11pm deadline.
But with a deal agreed between both clubs, the move crumbled after it was claimed Chelsea submitted the incorrect documentation in order to sign off on the deal on more than one occasion.
