PSG Owners Are Preparing To Pull Their Funds From The Club
Paris Saint-Germain owners Qatar Sports Investments could pull back on their funding for the French champions after reports suggest that they are ready to cut their losses.
Le Parisien reports that Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the current head of state for Qatar, and other investors have been disappointed with the Ligue 1 side's progress since their investment into the club back in 2011.
The French newspaper adds that the Qatar Emir believes that PSG's poor performances outside of the domestic competitions is "harmful to his image."
It has been reported that the QSI could turn its attention elsewhere and rumours have suggested that Roma would fit into the organisation's long-term plans.
However, Football Italia has said that Roma co-owner and president James Pallotta has denied that the PSG owners have enquired about investing in the Italian club.
"Qatar Sports Investments want to acquire Roma? There is nothing to it. This is fake," he told RomaPress.

Reports last month surfaced that the QSI had placed an interest in snapping up an English club in the Championship and would want it to play a major role in the Premier League, replicating the domestic success that they have had with PSG in France with a side in England.
The QSI appointed Nasser Al-Khelaifi as president of PSG in 2011 and the club have dominated the domestic league.
However, they have failed to make their impact in the Champions League and even suffered an early exit in the competition this season at the hands of Manchester United.
PSG, of course, have the two most expensive transfers in history to their name, having lured Neymar away from Barcelona for a fee of €222m and signing Kylian Mbappé from Monaco for €180m.
Thomas Tuchel's men defended -- and successfully retained -- their domestic crown this season with four matches remaining in the league.
