FFP rules for PSG into player sales

Paris Saint Germain

Paris Saint-Germain have to raise 60million euros in player sales in order to comply with Financial Fair Play [FFP] rules.

Governing body UEFA opened an investigation into the Ligue 1 club’s transfer dealings in September after heavy spending last summer, with PSG forking out over 400m euros on Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

The French champions have been cleared of breaching FFP rules but must sell 60m euros worth of players by the end of the month.

‘The financial impact of transfer activities as from the 2017 summer – up to and including the upcoming transfer window – and compliance with the break-even requirement for the 2018 financial year will remain under close scrutiny and will be thoroughly looked at in the coming weeks,’ Uefa said in statement.

PSG have been heavily linked with Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante but may struggle to land their targets until they have moved some of their current squad members on first.

Goncalo Guedes and Grzegorz Krychowiak, who spent last season on loan at Valencia and West Brom respectively, are likely to be sold but PSG may also have to cash in on some first-team stars such as Adrien Rabiot, Angel Di Maria, Marco Verratti and Javier Pastore to comply with FFP rules
