Paris Saint-Germain continues to be plagued by problems. Following Kylian Mbappe’s desire to leave the club, they are already facing a legal problem.
The European Court of Justice will examine whether Lionel Messi’s transfer from PSG breached UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules in 2021.
This situation was brought by a group of fans belonging to a group of Barcelona fans in Lyon, Marca writes
As a result, a chamber of the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg will have to consider whether Messi’s signing from PSG breached Financial Fair Play rules next Tuesday.
The supporters consider the fact that the complaint has ended in court a “success”, as their lawyer Juan Branco points out, but this does not guarantee anything.
The truth is that even though the signing of Messi was a free transfer, the salary of the former Barcelona player, 40 million euros this season, is what caused this whole situation.
This legal matter regarding Messi comes at the worst possible time for PSG, as there is currently a tense atmosphere due to Mbappe’s alleged desire to leave the team in January.
The truth is that Messi is having a good season in France and although no new details of this complaint will be known until next week, PSG will be worried from 09:30 on Tuesday when the investigations begin.
