European giants may get kicked out of Champions League, club director leaves role

Posted by

PSG seem to be spending money like it has gone out of fashion recently, splashing £198m on Neymar this summer, per the Telegraph, before snapping up a temporarily loan deal subject to a €180m permanent move for Kylian Mbappe weeks later, so say ESPN.

However, their spending habits may have landed them in hot water, with the club in danger of being thrown out of the Champions League due to a breach in Financial Fair Play regulations, according to Spanish outlet El Pais.

They say Juventus, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are a handful of many clubs who have complained about the French outfit’s transfer antics.

This led to Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore, Blaise Matuidi, Lucas Moura, Julian Draxler, Hatem Ben Arfa and Thiago Silva all being transfer listed within two days.

The Sun state that PSG are willing to sell Edison Cavani after his relationship with new boy Neymar has turned bitter following an on-pitch argument with his teammate. 

However, Neymar now wants Barcelona kicked out after they did not give Neymar a contractual £23m as a loyalty bonus, Spanish source AS reports.

UEFA are said to have acted promptly to dismiss any suggestion of the Catalan giants being removed from the competition.

Barcelona’s club director walks away from role following Neymar exit

The Sun reported on Saturday that Barcelona club director Raul Sanllehi, who had been a major factor in helping Neymar arrive at the Nou Camp, had left the Copa Del Rey holders.

Marca say that he left due to being “upset and frustrated” following the exit of the Brazilian.

What seemed to be like the perfect transfer capture has turned into a big brawling storm that threatens the club’s place on Europe’s biggest stage.
