The woes of the transfer window
The young Ismael Gharbi saw his transfer to OGC Nice fall through. The two files Gharbi and Ziyech were linked. Our colleagues from RMC Sports return to this failed deal and explain that PSG and Nice had an agreement before 10:30 p.m. But the Parisians transmitted the documents only after having received those of Hakim Ziyech. As a result, the LFP received the elements of the loan from Gharbi at 11:05 p.m., 5 minutes too late. OGC Nice, like PSG, has requested an exemption from the League. But as for the Moroccan, the legal commission of the LFP invalidated the loan of Gharbi. always according to RMC Sports, at least two other players who were to sign for a Ligue 1 club experienced the same misadventure. In Spain, FC Barcelona experienced a similar situation. The Spanish media Sport reports that due to bureaucratic issues with the Los Angeles Galaxy and MLS, the operation Julian Araujo could not succeed. Barça and the North American team had nevertheless agreed on a loan with an option to buy € 5 million for the signing of the right side. The Mexican was first to join the Blaugrana B team before joining the A team in the short or medium term. Barça is now waiting for FIFA to validate the operation.
Chelsea’s low blow to Ziyech
Everything was closed! PSG and Chelsea had agreed to the loan ofhakim ziyech. The Moroccan had successfully passed his medical examination, all that was missing was the approval of the contract by the LFP. And finally, the sale fell through. Blame it on a succession of errors on the part of the Blues, which give the feeling of having deliberately sabotaged the transfer. The newspaper The Team today reveals the backstage of this incredible deal. We thus learn that a first erroneous document was sent around 9:50 p.m. Chelsea gave no sign of life for 1 hour before sending a second document… not signed! Faced with very tight timing, PSG took the initiative to return this contract initialed by the club and Ziyech. Three minutes later, Chelsea responds not understanding the situation, but ends up sending a new document. This time without the attachment… A final, error-free version finally arrives at the offices of PSG headquarters at 11:03 p.m. Too late. French clubs had until 11 p.m. to send the transfer papers to the LFP. The Parisian club tried to make a complaint to the League, but the verdict was in: hakim ziyech will not be a PSG player. Despite the evidence in this case, the Blues were not held responsible for this flop. A hell of a snub for the club from the French capital and for the player who is forced to return to London, against his will.
