Tebas Adamant PSG Have Breached Financial Fair Play Regulations
La Liga President Javier Tebas says he has evidence that Paris Saint Germain have breached Financial Fair Play regulations.
Tebas has long been critical of the French club’s spending power.
PSG currently have the two most expensive footballers of all-time on their books in the shape of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The Parisians also brought in Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan for big money this summer and despite acquiring the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Georginio Wijnaldum on free transfers, the quartet come with large salaries.
Tebas is adamant PSG have cheated the system to make the big-name signings.
"I can show, with figures, their deception against Financial Fair Play," Tebas told L’Equipe.
"Before Messi, PSG had 40 per cent more income for sponsorship than Manchester United.
"If Messi and Neymar remain at PSG, I don't care. It's just that this hurts a lot of European football. I'm not alone in saying it.
"I criticise them because they cannot bring in the money for the squad they have. It causes a distortion of competition. It does not correspond to the actual sponsorship.
"How can they explain that they have a squad of almost €600m? If they win Ligue 1, they will not generate more than €45m. It is impossible.
"I invited president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and the French league chief [Vincent Labrune] to show them the numbers we have and where the irregularities are. They didn't answer me.
"They are quick to criticise me, but they do not answer."
