PSG Forced To Sell 8 Players

Recommended Posts

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN were reportedly told to sell eight players or face expulsion from the Champions League.

Spanish outlet El Pais claim Uefa acted after complaints from Juventus, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich among others that PSG had broken FFP regulations.

It goes on to state that Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore, Blaise Matuidi, Lucas Moura, Julian Draxler, Hatem Ben Arfa, Serge Aurier and Thiago Silva were transfer listed within 48 hours.

Only two of the players secured exits - Aurier to Tottenham and Matuidi to Juventus.

But it appears PSG's quick reaction was enough to ensure they were allowed to take their spot in the competition.

The January transfer window comes around before the knock-out stages and the remaining six players may spark a Europe-wide bidding war.

Boss Unai Emery and his squad are apparently furious at the events, with the expendable players most upset.

PSG hammered celtic 5-0 in their first European outing and face Bayern next in a mouthwatering tie, with the FFP row adding an extra dimension.

Emery’s side are also top of the league - a point clear of last season's shock winners Monaco.

Wouldn't put it past Liewell to be looking into this, to get the game against them void or result a draw. 

All in the name of sporting integrity and FFP. Probably checking if they are on French EBTs.

And he'll continue to pursue the case years and years down the line. Email after email.
