PSG and Man City in trouble due to FFP breach

PSG and Man City face new allegations of Financial Fair Play breach

November 2, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
According to Der Spiegel, the journal that leaked the information, FIFA president Gianni Infantino was aware of all their dealings.

Football Leaks has revealed a new scandal that involves Manchester City, PSG, and the current FIFA president, Gianni Infantino.

In a document obtained and published by Der Spiegel, Football Leaks reveals that Gianni Infantino offered lesser penalties to both Qatari-owned teams after they breached Financial Fair Play rules between 2011 and 2013. The document stipulates that Infantino "fought on behalf of the clubs, despite being general secretary of the investigating association," as the document states.

An incriminatory email between Infantino and Manchester City Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak allegedly sees FIFA's president providing confidential details for both clubs to avoid harsher Financial Fair Play rules.

Both clubs reached agreements with UEFA that hardly had any effect on their business. In fact, PSG went on with their spending spree by signing Neymar away from Barcelona in 2017, paying los Blaugranas over $260 million. These claims by the German outlet come after both clubs spent over a billion dollars in player transfers.

A key element of this investigation is the resignation of Brian Quinn, who was in charge of the FFP Investigatory Chamber. According to Der Spiegel, Quinn resigned since he allegedly believed the settlements were too lenient given the magnitude of the violations. 

The ramifications of this case could see both teams being excluded from next year's UEFA Champions League, but any more complications regarding player transfers could see both clubs forced to sell some of their best footballers, in order to make ammends for their alleged previous wrongdoings.
