(ANSA) – MADRID, JUN 13 – The Spanish Football League filed a complaint “last week” against the conditions of Erling Haaland’s transfer to Manchester City and will present another “this week” against the extension of Kylian’s contract Mbappé at Paris SG. President Javier Tebas assured this. “I’m not defending Real Madrid against Mbappé, I want to preserve European football,” he explained, during a press event in Valladolid.
“This week we will file a complaint against PSG and last week we presented one against Manchester City,” said the La Liga number 1. Tebas is one of the fiercest critics of state-backed clubs, namely Qatar for Paris SG and the United Arab Emirates for Manchester City. He accuses them of circumventing the financial fair play established by UEFA and of unbalancing the sporting and economic competition between the clubs.
Manchester City have bought Haaland from Borussia Dortmund for € 75 million, a figure corresponding to the Norwegian’s release clause, but with the agent’s commissions and the player’s salary the transfer will cost the Citizens almost € 300 million. Mbappe’s new contract at PSG will see the French club pay, according to press reports, between 40 and 50 million euros a year for the player’s salary alone, who has extended another three years with the Parisians.
“Allowing these operations is more dangerous than the Super League,” said Tebas, referring to the project born – and immediately aborted – to launch a closed European championship, reserved for the big names in European football. (HANDLE).
