The President of La Liga Javier Tebas has said that they will lodge official complaint with UEFA if PSG sign Neymar.
Javier Tebas and the LFP believe that if the Ligue 1 side pay Neymar’s €220m release clause, they would be breaking UEFA’s financial fair play rules.
If UEFA ignore their complaint, they will pursue their case through the relevant courts in Spain, France and Switzerland and through the EU in Brussels.
“La Liga will file this complaint because it’s a problem for La Liga’s competitiveness. Today it’s happened to Barca, tomorrow it could happen to Real Madrid, it’s happened to Atletico Madrid,” Tebas, the La Liga chairman, told Mundo Deportivo
According to Tebas, “no-one believes” the commercial revenue figures presented by PSG to justify their spending. “PSG cannot have figures in which PSG’s commercial rights exceed those of Real Madrid and Barcelona,” said Tebas. “No-one believes that. We’ve carried out economic studies and it’s impossible. “It means that the Qatari state is injecting money and that violates UEFA’s financial fair play rules and the European Union’s norms of economic competition, and we’re going to file a complaint.”
