La Liga wants UEFA to investigate Manchester City’s spending and expand its newly launched probe into whether Paris Saint-Germain have breached financial fair play rules.
Spanish league president Javier Tebas said in a statement to The Associated Press that Abu Dhabi-funded City and Qatari-owned PSG are benefiting from state aid which “distorts European competitions” and “is irreparably harming the football industry.”
Tebas wrote to UEFA on Aug. 22 requesting investigations into Man City and PSG.
UEFA said on Friday it would look into whether PSG was flouting rules designed to control excessive spending by top European clubs. Tebas wants UEFA to look into “PSG’s history of noncompliance.”
Both City and PSG spent hundreds of millions in the transfer window that closed last week.
