La Liga president challenges UEFA to investigate Man City transfers

PSG have hit back though claiming that UEFA are welcome at their offices at any time

Tebas described City as "peeing in the pool" in reference to the vast amounts of money they have invested in manager Pep Guardiola's squad. "We can not let them get away with this", he said at the Soccerex conference in Manchester.

These past few years Manchester City have paid out almost a thousand million on players, PSG £950m.

"We note the public comments made by Mr Tebas today and earlier this week", City Football Group said in a widely-reported statement on Wednesday.

PSG shattered the world transfer record last month when they activated Neymar's buy-out clause and paid £198m to buy the Brazilian from Barcelona, a payment which La Liga initially refused to accept.

City, along with PSG, were the subject of a complaint made by La Liga in a letter to UEFA on August 22, calling for an investigation into both clubs for "violation of financial fair play regulations".

"Let's imagine Manchester City loans 11 players to Girona for one euro each, that would be outside market values".

"Uefa and other institutions, the European Union, need to carry out investigations".

After initially claiming the clubs were "irreparably harming football", Tebas has once again launched a scathing attack, this time using a rather weird analogy.

Indication-specific pricing is an approach pharmacy benefits manager Express Scripts has been pushing for other cancer drugs. More than 3,000 patients aged 20 or younger are diagnosed with ALL every year, according to the National Cancer Institute .

The City Football Group (CFG) added: "As you would expect, Manchester City Football Club and the City Football Group are seeking appropriate legal counsel and will act accordingly on that advice". During the summer of 2017, City had a net spend of £138.1m and came close to signing Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez in a deal that would have reached £60m.

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. That is impossible. This is financial doping". They [Uefa] have created the financial fair play rules and we think these rules have been infringed. They have agreed on sponsorships that are above market price.

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.

But City are confident UEFA will not take any action because they have been intensely monitored by the European governing body.

Tebas said the club's transfer business was being raised by unrealistic sponsorship deals.

"This is the gas price not the football price".

"They are laughing at the industry aren't they?"
