Could Paris Saint-Germain be forced to sell Kylian Mbappe this summer?
Monday, April 16, 2018
The newly-crowned Ligue 1 champions are currently being investigated by UEFA over their massive spending in recent transfer windows.
PSG smashed transfer records to sign Brazilian star Neymar from Barcelona last summer for a whopping Â£198million.
They followed that record-breaking deal with an agreement to sign Mbappe from rivals Monaco for Â£167m this summer, having originally brought him to the Parc des Princes on loan.
PSG are contractually obliged to go through with the deal at the end of the season but it is claimed the FFP investigation may lead to the Qatar-backed club immediately selling the 19-year-old superstar.
If found guilty of breaching the rules, PSG would face massive fines as well as being kicked out of the Champions League , and may be forced to sell some of their top players to balance their books.
And, according to the Daily Mirror , Manchester City are monitoring Mbappeâ€™s situation in case the door is opened for a summer bid.
Pep Guardiola was linked with a big-money move for the 19-year-old French star last summer after he helped Monaco beat PSG to the Ligue 1 title last season.
But he eventually moved to Paris, after PSG blew all other suitors out of the water.
UEFA opened their investigation into PSGâ€™s transfer deals last September, but it is claimed the club are not worried and are confident they will be cleared by the European bosses.
