The Spanish Board claims PSG is as deadly as the defeated-Super League and as such should be brought to book by the responsible body
Kylian Mbappe snubbing Real Madrid for a stay at PSG is really raising dust as La Liga takes advanced step against Paris Saint German with a claim that the current contract handed to the Frenchman is only attacking ‘the economic stability of European football’.
Real Madrid were so close to announcing a Kylian Mbappe signature before PSG took over to present the 23-year-old a hard to refuse offer.
Mbappe clearly wanted to leave but with a contract as fat as that which PSG offered, no player on this earth would continue on his decision to move.
According to several spanish media sources, the contract included a promise to get rid of the manager, Mauricio Pochettino and also bring in Ousmane Dembele who is almost out of contract at Barcelona.
It’s clear that not just Real Madrid but also the La Liga sees this as a big slap to their face, following their crumbled expectations of how much money could have been made should the deal pull through to Real Madrid.
Mbappe isn’t just a good player but as well a commercial asset just like Ronaldo and Messi and as such would bring in huge sum for any club signing him.
‘It is scandalous that a club like PSG, which last season reported losses of more than 220 million euros after accumulating losses of more than 700 million euros in prior seasons (while reporting sponsorship income at doubtful valuation), with a squad cost around 650 million for this season, can close such an agreement, while those clubs that could afford the hiring of the player without seeing their wage bill compromised, are left without being able to sign him[Mbappe],” La Liga cries on their website.
The body has promised to sue PSG over the issue in a bid ‘to defend the economic ecosystem of European football and its sustainability.’
La Liga also in their statement made mention of having successfully made complaints against PSG for ‘non-compliance with financial fair play’ which was taken care of by UEFA until the Court of Artbitration for Sport (CAS) made a ‘bizarre’ decision to overturn the ruling.
‘This behaviour demonstrates once more that state owned clubs do not respect and do not want to respect the rules of a sector as important as football. These rules are key to protect and sustain hundreds of thousands of jobs.
‘This kind of behaviour led by Al-Khelaifi, president of PSG, and member of the UEFA Executive Committee and president of ECA, endangers European football on the same level as the European Super League.’
