FFP: La Liga calls for Manchester City investigation

FFP: La Liga calls for Manchester City investigation
The Spanish football league, La Liga, has written to European football governing body, UEFA, demanding for investigation into the possibility that the English club has broken the financial fair play rules.

City, who are bankrolled by the Abu Dhabi United Group, spent over £200million on new players this summer, which has led to calls from La Liga to have them investigated by UEFA.

“Funding by state-aid distorts European competitions and creates an inflationary spiral that is irreparably harming the football industry,” La Liga president Javier Tebas said of City and PSG, according to the BBC.

UEFA has already began investigating if Paris Saint-Germain, who broke records in signing Neymar, have broken the FFP rules, designed to stop clubs from ‘financial doping’.

PSG, backed by the Gulf state of Qatar via its Qatar sports investments fund, broke transfer record when Neymar joined the club from Barcelona for €222million, before adding 18-year-old striker, Kylian Mbappe on loan from Monaco, and are expected to make the deal permanent next summer for £165.7million.
