Porter’s five forces
To describe the football club Paris Saint Germain’s competitive environment, it is subservient to use Porter’s five forces, Which composed from the threat of entrant, the power of suppliers, the power of consumers, the threat of substitutes and the competitive rivalry (which is influenced by the former four).

Additionally it could cause anticipated entry wars, if they want to buy the same players etc. Power of suppliers
