Currently Paris St Germaine is owned by the Qatar Investment Authority.
Daniel Hechter the Fashion guy owned the club in the seventies, he got banned from football for life after a double ticket scandalat Parc de Princes a strategy to reduce the clubs deficit.....
He was replaced in the 78 by Francis Borelli who whas in charge for 13 years and the club ended in huge debt in the erly 1990's.
French TV channel canal+ purchased it it 1991, this boosted the income of the club from televised games significantly and it became one of the richest clubs in france. Canal+ Managed the club through Michel Denisot as president. Denisot left in 1998 and the club was ran into the ground with a huge deficit.
The club was sold in to another consortium in 2009 who sold it to the Qatar Investment authority in 2011.
So the last single owner of the club was Francis Borelli, in the 80's and early 90's, don't know if he ever owned Sted Francias.
I do know that Stade Francais was for years one of the weaker teams in French rugby. This changed ater 1992, when Max Guazzini bought the club, he sold his major stake in the club in 2011. but he never owned the Football club.
Those are the only two possible candidates for the person you met with Dr Luyt. It could have been an interesting meeting.
