LaLiga have stepped up their attacks on Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain for “continually breaching current Financial Fair Play regulations”.
League president Javier Tebas has already spoken out against the vast spending by Pep Guardiola’s side and the French champions.
It comes after Real Madrid missed out on Erling Haaland, who joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund for £51million.
Los Blancos also failed in their pursuit of Kylian Mbappe, who had been heavily linked with a move to PSG, to sign a new three-year contract to stay with the Parisians, which was worth a £650,000 payout. the week.
Following Mbappe’s lucrative deal, which was not well received by Real Madrid fans, Tebas filed a complaint with UEFA against PSG this week, having previously complained about Man City in april.
“This week, LaLiga lodged a complaint with UEFA against PSG, in addition to another against Manchester City in April, on the grounds that these clubs are in continuous breach of current Financial Fair Play rules,” reads a statement. LaLiga statement.
“LaLiga considers that these practices alter the ecosystem and sustainability of football, harm all European clubs and leagues and only serve to artificially inflate the market, with money not generated by football itself.
“LaLiga understands that the irregular financing of these clubs is done either through direct injections of money or through sponsorship and other contracts that do not correspond to market conditions and do not make economic sense. “

Tebas previously accused PSG of ‘destroying the ecosystem of European football’ after Mbappe, who was set to sign for Real Madrid on a free, agreed to his outstanding new deal.
“They’re going to have to cheat,” Tebas said on Monday, as quoted by Marca.
“I don’t know whether to pay outside the French community or to increase sponsorships a lot.
“We are not going to allow a European team to destroy the ecosystem of European football,” he added, when Mbappe’s new contract was confirmed.
“It’s not a problem of French football but of European football. We want Ligue 1 to be a sustainable competition.
“It’s not good for the industry. Our complaint regarding the PSG affair has already been drafted and we will file it with UEFA in the coming days.
