Mbappe transfer - have PSG broken financial fair play rules?

Following the announcement that UEFA will conduct a probe into Paris Saint-Germain's summer transfer activity, the capital club has released a statement detailing the club's co-operation with FFP regulations.

Mbappe, who joined PSG on a season-long loan from Monaco on deadline day with a clause for the club to buy him for €180 million plus bonuses next summer, has become one of the world's most sought-after teenagers. UEFA didn't accept that valuation and publicly said only it had used a figure "significantly below that submitted by the club".

Oxlade-Chamberlain follows Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson and Dominic Solanke through the door at Anfield, while Naby Keita will arrive from RB Leipzig next year in a club-record deal worth over £48 million.

Clubs can also offset some of their expenses that count as investments, such as expenditures for academy programs, and stadium improvements and infrastructure.

Clubs can ultimately be kicked out of European competition for flouting the rules although until now UEFA has tried to negotiate settlements with offenders. The then-English champions Manchester City and PSG were both given €60 million fines, €40 million of which suspended, in 2014, and saw their squads for the Champions League cut from 25 to 21 players.

PSG will now turn to Mbappe and Neymar to lead the team to elusive Champions League glory.

And Wenger now believes that it is pointless having a rule "that can not be imposed". "The worldwide French striker is transferred on a loan basis from AS Monaco until June 30, 2018", PSG said in a statement. Since it was brought in you could argue it's gone the other way.

Kylian Mbappe's much-anticipated move to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) finally went through yesterday evening with Monaco loaning the 18-year-old forward until the end of the season along with an option to make the move permanent.

Wenger hinted that he had given up on FFP in the wake of Neymar's signing last month, saying: "Once a country owns a club, everything is possible".

The transfer has delighted PSG fans as the club continues to assemble one of the most feared lineups in the world.

UEFA released a statement saying that the investigation would focus on the compliance of the club with the break even rules, particularly over its recent transfer moves.

Tergivers
Those who came by step: The spider, the bat, The foal and the shadows, Those who face the fire, The crackle, They sought rest. Others, just like me, They would want to kill them, But when they see that I burn, My comrades smile, Seeing I can dance.
