La Liga president challenges UEFA to investigate Man City transfers

Kylian Mbappe is one of the players signed by Paris Saint Germain in the summer window

"PSG is a habitual offender and has been violating UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations for years", Tebas added.

The Ligue 1 club, backed by the state of Qatar since Qatar Sports Investments' 2011 takeover, also brokered a loan-to-buy deal with Monaco for the highly-rated teenager Kylian Mbappé, who could join the club permanently for €180m in 2018.

Tebas has gone on record as saying that he was considering taking legal action against both PSG and Manchester City but has now backtracked slightly on that, saying he would ideally like UEFA to be the prosecuting body rather than go to the relevant courts in Brussels dealing with competition law. "Any reports mentioning such an investigation are unsubstantiated", the spokesperson said.

"Maybe PSG can sustain these prices, I don't know".

"We carried out the study analysing the various income streams and PSG has more sponsorship than Manchester United".

As a way of attempting to improve his credibility, La Liga boss Tebas cited his previous criticism of Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, noting: 'Where are they now? "The whole world is being destructured".


"PSG has a lot more from sponsorship than Manchester United". They [UEFA] have created the financial fair play rules and we think these rules have been infringed. They are not financial doping.

"If United had bought Neymar from Barcelona, then we would not be complaining as that would have been within the rules".

Later, at a media briefing, Tebas said he was mystified as to why UEFA ultimately reduced the sanctions meted out to PSG and City after apparently taking the view that both clubs had made a sufficient effort to balance the books. PSG paid Barcelona €222 million for Neymar but it's never ending.

And when asked if PSG could repeat the feat with two even bigger names, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Tebas admitted it is not out of the question. 'Why are you giving him biscuits and not me biscuits?' If it's wrong, it's wrong.

In a dig at PSG's Qatari owners, Tebas claimed that the £198 million paid to Barcelona for Neymar was "the gas market price not the football price". It's very easy for them to manage it, it's not complex.

'They are laughing at the system. What we have done is caught them peeing in the bed, or the swimming pool. Neymar has gone on to the diving board and peed in the swimming pool. "This is not acceptable".
