What's more, PSG has become a household name in the European football. As the president of PSG, the club has housed stellar names in the world of football including David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and lately Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
Moreover, in February 2012, he won a French 'Sports Business' award, receiving the most votes out of 1,500 and finishing ahead of nine people.
The QSI he chairs is worth more than a 100 billion dollars, and beIN media is one of the most successful sports media houses in the middle east. All these have contributed to his net worth which is thought to be in billions.
However, his time as the head of QSI has not been free of controversies. His team's spending has fallen foul of the financial fair play (FFP) in an investigation by UEFA. What's more, he was accused of gifting his Sardinian house worth $6 million as a bribe to FIFA secretary Jerome Valcke in exchange of world cup hosting rights for 2022, which was awarded to Qatar in controversial circumstances.
Not just that, the Qatar native had his house searched by the investigators, and he was questioned in regards to the corruption scam.
Nasser Al-Khelaifi Hopes Real Madrid Respects PSG
The PSG president is undoubtedly on point when it comes to talking business, and he prefers face to face talk rather than behind backs stabbing. This manner came into action all over again in September 2018 when Real Madrid tried its hands to land Neymar just a year on from his record transfer from Barcelona.
The president was not happy about their move, and he expressed his disdain for their deed sarcastically while talking to INDEPENDENT saying:
We have a good relationship and they (Real Madrid) say they respect PSG, I hope that is true.
He also let out his professional persona and delivered a standard message about not working behind the scenes. But his strongest of words were saved for the president of La Liga. He targeted La Liga President, Javier Tebas, outrightly for his attacking and suggested him to mind his own business
That is some real professionalism out there.
Is Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s Married? Wife Standby?
Although his professional front remains open like an open book, the details of his love life remain mysterious. Because of his day job as the PSG chairman, he is regularly seen spending time with most prominent names in football which has intensified the search for his married life. However, he has been successful enough to hide his dating affairs out of the limelight.
What's more, the absence of details about his wife or girlfriend has made him one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.
The chairman of PSG is not into social media and has not been found sharing love affairs with a girlfriend nor delivered any suspicions regarding his married life and wife to the public.
Judging by the revelations till this date, its evident that he is more focused and dedicated towards his career because of which the media also hasn’t been able to cover the dating aspect of his life.
Until and unless Nasser decides to front the media and reveal himself about his wife and children; the rumor mills will continue spinning.
