La Liga president Javier Tebas urges UEFA to investigate on Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain strategic approach on the transfer market. He believes that both clubs are circumnavigating the Financial Fair Play rules.
After that Ligue 1 giant PSG has signed Neymar from Barcelona for a whopping €222m in August, the Pariseans agreed a €180m deal with Monaco for Kylian Mbappe. These operations triggered Javier Tebas’s fury who formally asked the European football governing body to look into PSG’s recent transfer deals.
La Liga chief feels there is a financial strategy implemented by PSG and Manchester City that is affecting the world of football creating a financial doping that could cause catastrophic consequences.
“PSG and Man City’s investments are creating an inflationary spiral. These two clubs are funded by state-aid and their approach on the transfer market distorts European competitions. Their way to do business is irreparably harming the football industry. – said Tebas said in a letter to UEFA, as reported by Associated Press.
“I firmly believe that UEFA must enforce FFP regulations to avoid discrimination among clubs. PSG violated UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations for years and it is continuing on this path.
UEFA must pay attention to PSG’s history of noncompliance. The transfers are merely the result of years of financial doping at PSG.”
There’s ongoing investigations on PSG but UEFA will not investigate into Manchester City’s summer transfer spending despite La Liga writing to European football’s governing body demanding it do so. Today, UEFA spokesperson clarified that, “There is no investigation into Manchester City with regards to FFP regulations. Any reports mentioning such an investigation are unsubstantiated.”
