Paris Saint-Germain set for FFP investigation after Neymar, Mbappe deals

Posted September 02, 2017

Many in the world of football had expected PSG to come under UEFA scrutiny for their summer dealings which notably included the signings of Neymar for a world-record fee of around €220m and teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, who has joined on loan from Monaco with an obligation to buy next summer for €180m. "The global French striker is transferred on a loan basis from AS Monaco until June 30 2018", PSG said in a statement.

The loan agreement includes an option for PSG to sign the France global on a permanent deal until June 2022.

Mbappe joined the Parisians on a season-long loan but the real coup lies in the agreement to sign him for €180 million the following summer.

"I want to continue my development while helping the team to achieve the great goals they have set".

"For example, Deputy Managing Director Jean-Claude Blanc presented UEFA experts at UEFA's headquarters for more than three hours on 23 August, including Andrea Traverso, responsible for UEFA's financial fair play. that the operations carried out with FC Barcelona and the current one with AS Monaco were in compliance with the rules of the Financial Fair Play for the financial year 2017/2018".

However, the double signings mean PSG will need to generate an estimated 125m euros annually to match its 2015/16 financial statement, although that blow has been softened as Mbappe was taken on a loan deal, with a view to a permanent move, meaning his transfer will be settled in the next financial year.

Mbappe burst onto the scene in the second half of last season and scored 15 goals in 29 appearances in Monaco's run to the French title.
