UEFA rules on alleged Financial Fair Play breach by PSG

For those who believed that PSG were going to be forced to part ways with some of their high-priced signings from last summer, the next few lines will bring them back to reality.

Following an investigation by UEFA, football's governing body in Europe has determined that PSG's marketing income hasn't been inflated, meaning that all their transfer business from last season is legal.

The world of football watched in awe how PSG made Neymar the most expensive player in history by paying his hefty buyout clause from Barcelona. Weeks later, Kylian Mbappé followed the same path, but some believed that spending over $400M in two players had to be fueled by shady investments, something that UEFA dismissed today.

However, PSG's transfer business this summer will have a slight restriction. UEFA execs revealed today that Les Parisiens will be forced to sell players for over $47M if they want to add more footballers to their squad. 

Coach Thomas Tuchel has urged the Ligue 1 champions to sign at least four players, including a goalkeeper and two midfielders. Footballers like Javier Pastore, Angel Di Maria, Adrien Rabiot, Marco Verratti and Edinson Cavani have been involved in transfer rumors, which means that Les Parisiens will not have any problems in meeting that demand.
