Hakim Ziyech has seen his hopes of a loan transfer to PSG break down at the last possible moment with the Ligue 1 giants left fuming after Chelsea sent incorrect documents multiple times.

The Morocco player enjoyed an amazing World Cup with his country as they reached the semi-finals. Those magical performances appear to have put him in the transfer window for a lucrative move away from Stamford Bridge.

The loan move to the PSG was described as a ‘dream move’ for the Chelsea man. After all, the chance to team up with some of the world’s top attackers such as Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Lionel Messi does not come around often.

Hakim Ziyech was eager to sign with the Ligue 1 leaders and arrived with every intention of signing on the deadline day.

And after passing his medicals, it only seemed a matter of when, not if, the deal would go through.

However, with Chelsea lawyers seemingly occupied with other crucial transfers – the Blues earlier signed off the Jorginho sale to Arsenal and the finer details of Enzo Fernandez’s British record transfer – the move of Hakim Ziyech failed to go through in time due to the incorrect documents sent multiple times.

The documentation was seemingly signed and sealed from the PSG end. However, with Chelsea failing to sign it off in time, trusted reporter Ben Jacobs has revealed the staggering turn of events.

Ben Jacobs tweeted, ‘Hakim Ziyech deal is OFF. He is stranded in PSG club offices. Low confidence in any appeal or solution. Chelsea didn’t submit the paperwork on time.

‘PSG fuming. Ziyech has done everything in his power to make the move happen. Told he even offered to help financially. But right now he can’t be registered and is stuck in Paris.

‘PSG has an appeal route to LFP [French football’s French governing body for professional football]. But they are not optimistic on their chances.’
