La Liga has filed complaints with UEFA accusing Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain of “continuously breaching applicable financial fair play regulations”.

The first lawsuit against Manchester City was filed in April, the second against PSG has now also been submitted to UEFA.

This comes from Kylian Mbappe staying at PSG as he has been heavily linked with a move to PSG Real Madrid and Erling Haaland joined City when he was touted as a possible signing for Real and Barcelona.

A statement from La Liga read: “La Liga filed a complaint with UEFA this week against PSG, which will join another against Manchester City in April, because it understands that these clubs are continuously violating current regulations on the… violate financial fair play.

“La Liga believes that these practices are changing the ecosystem and sustainability of football, are detrimental to all European clubs and leagues and only serve to artificially inflate the market, with no money generated in football itself.

“La Liga understands that the irregular funding of these clubs comes either through direct cash injections or through sponsorship and other deals that do not reflect market conditions or make commercial sense.

“The complaints against Manchester City before UEFA were filed in April and this past week the relevant PSG was presented, although it is not excluded that some of these complaints will be extended with new submissions in the coming days.

“In addition, La Liga has contracted law firms in France and Switzerland, including the French law firm Juan Branco, with the aim of instituting administrative and judicial proceedings before the competent French authorities and before the European Union as soon as possible.”

La Liga president Javier Tebas said of City’s deal to sign Haaland from Borussia Dortmund for an initial fee of £51m, which will rise to £85.5m: “They must have done something because (Erling) Haaland the clubs asked for more than the €60 (£51m) paid.’
