From the consolidation of the signing of Ronaldinho by the FC Barcelona in the summer of 2003 pertinent of Paris Saint-Germain, to the dessert anybody had imagined that the Parisian group would turn into the public enemy of the Barcelona team, by his place with the permission of the historical rivalry that is supported by the Real Madrid. It was in 2011 when, the private bottom Qatar Sports Investments purchased 70% of the actions of the PSG, and since the course of the square Frenchman despegó with course to the hypothetical consolidation of the UEFA Champions League, the first of his history.

With the investment catarí in hand, the already directed team by Nasser To the-Khelaifi, attained that it Tie it 1 turned into a championship that in every year already carries name and surname. Left behind remained historical teams like the Olympique of Lyon or the Olympique of Marseilles, as they lost all possibility to struggle by any French title. From 2011, the PSG has harvested seven of the nine leagues that has in his list of winners, in addition to five Glasses of France, six Glasses of the League and eight Supercopas of France.

The main aim of the PSG

The capital of Qatar in the Parisian club has had a clear aim from the start: conquer the Champions League. It was until the past campaign when at last they could stroke the longed for gesta, where fell in the maximum instance in front of the Bayern Munich by the minimum (1-0). Although, the time will determine if prpers have reached similar exploit will remain only in memories. Meanwhile, if deasean conquer Europe, will have to surpass to the Barça in the eighth of final of the competition, which would mean the 10° duel between both clubs in 9 seasons contested, 5 of which have finalised with a favourable result for the culés, 3 for the Frenchmen and 3 ties.

The impenetrable Parisian barrier

Again, the PSG is one of the teams that accustoms to star the quinielas of face to top at most regente of the contest with greater prestige to level of clubs in the world, and in case it was not little, with the money like punishment due to the fact that, by not having the need to sell to any of his players, always are disturbed by the shadow of the Fair Playfinancial . The Barça in multiple occasions has called to the door of the Parisian group with the end to do with the services of any of his players and always has received the same answer: no.

The first conflict between both dates of the summer of 2013 when the Barcelona looked for to reinforce his defensive axis and the name of Thiago Silva was in the focus of the Barcelona panorama. The club arrived to a direct agreement with the Brazilian footballer, but the PSG denied categorically to undo of one of his pillars, in that season and in the back that tried ficharlo the Barça.

It looks it of the culés aimed to another central Brazilian. Marquinhos Was the following candidate that proposed the sportive direction of Can Barça to reinforce the defensive line. The player was considered then like one of the central with greater projection in 2016, and even gave him the 'if' to the Barcelona club, but again, the PSG closed him the doors.

The extension of the disagreement

It was in the summer of 2017 when the Barça went back to stir up the Parisian waters to reinforce the medullary. In this opportunity was Marco Verratti the elected, and for the moment said that it was the clear successor of Xavi Hernández. The one of Terrassa affirmed publicly his interest in the incorporation of the Italian: "I think that it seems me and technically it is incredible, is a player that would like me see in the Barcelona", said the ex captain culé.

The mediocampista Italian showed also his interest in the press and through his social networks, but then the Barça did not attain to do with his services. In this same summer, Nasser To the-Khelaifi credited the clause of Neymar Jr, enciphered in 222 million euros, by what the Brazilian star put course to the French capital to turn into the bastion of the team. Immediately, the forward arrepintió of his decision and since his name has not left to sound in the Catalan surroundings from does several summers. However, the same has seen retarded, and cancelled, by the current situation by which crosses the club, which has aggravated with the pandemia by Covid-19, what does practically impossible that Neymar can go back to carry the elastic Barcelona for the moment.

Afterwards of the signing frustrated of Verratti, the Barça did not leave to insist and tried to do with the services of Adrien Rabiot, the one who finalised agreement in the market of summer of 2019. The relations between the Barcelona and PSG were already so cracked that the Parisians preferred 'give it' by 10 millions in winter before it arrived free in summer to Can Barça. Finally, the Barcelona finished for decanting by the index card of Frenkie Of Jong to reinforce the medullary of the team.
