Paris St-Germain Caught Peeing In The Pool, Says La Liga President

Kyle Walker's £50m move to Manchester City is another that has riled La Liga chief Tebas

Tebas had already lambasted Qatar-owned PSG and UAE-owned Manchester City on Monday, accusing them of being funded by state aid and circumventing FFP rules. "We can not let them get away with this", he said at the Soccerex conference in Manchester.

Tebas said La Liga had stepped in to prevent the five being registered for far less than their correct value.

"Mr Tebas' statements are ill-informed and in parts pure fiction", City said.

PSG, also under the ownership of wealthy Middle-Eastern backers, have themselves taken transfer spending to a new level this summer as they paid £198m for Brazilian forward Neymar and agreed to hand over £166m to sign Kylian Mbappe permanently next year.

Last week, Uefa opened a formal investigation into whether PSG had breached Financial Fair Play regulations (FFP) by triggering Neymar's €222m release clause.

"There is no investigation into Manchester City with regards to Financial Fair Play regulations".

UEFA did announce last week that PSG are being investigated but Press Association Sport understands that was not prompted by La Liga's complaint and City are certainly not being looked at.

PSG chief Al-Khelaifi: Those "thinking about FFP I tell them ... go have a coffee and don't worry about us, we are in good hands".

PSG have been owned by Qatari Sports Investments (QSI) since 2011 and Tebas claims clubs with mega-rich owners have an unfair advantage over their rivals.

Tebas also took aim at Manchester City, who have spent vast sums to establish themselves as one of the premier sides in European football since being purchased by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008.

"La Liga calls on UEFA to proceed with its investigation, taking into account the full history of PSG's actions". That's impossible. That's financial doping. "If we don't control this, the smaller leagues will not grow and the whole industry will be destructured". They [Uefa] have created the financial fair play rules and we think these rules have been infringed.

It is, however, their spending on the likes of Neymar and Mbappe this summer that has led to so much concern, with the world-record fee for Neymar seeming to significantly inflate transfer fees all over Europe. This is not football's market price.

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? They are laughing at the system.
