A UEFA spokesperson said earlier this week: “We haven’t received any complaint regarding this matter but, irrespective of whether we receive a complaint or not, we would in any case look into the details of such a transfer if it goes ahead to ensure that it respects financial fair play rules.
“PSG must respect financial fair play rules as do all other clubs in Europe. They must demonstrate that they do not have losses of more than €30m over three years.
“The impact of a potential transfer of Neymar to PSG would have an effect on the club finances over several years. It is very difficult to judge this type of operation in advance as we do not know the plans of the French club. They could well sell a few players for a similar or even superior amount. We shall therefore only make calculations at the end and make sure that they respect the rules.”
If the deal does go ahead then PSG’s chances of establishing themselves as a dominant club in Europe will be significantly boosted.
Neymar possesses much experience of playing at the highest level and produced some impressive displays for Barcelona last season as he scored 13 goals and created 89 chances in L Liga.
The 25-year-old’s trickery and directness would provide PSG with an extra dimension as Unai Emery’s side look to regain the Ligue 1 title from Monaco.
