LaLiga are considering taking legal action against Paris Saint-Germain over their renewal of Kylian Mbappe’s contract, sources have told ESPN, after the forward decided to snub a move to Real Madrid and stay in France.
ESPN reported on Saturday that Mbappe has informed Madrid president Florentino Perez, as well as PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino and teammates, that he would not be leaving Paris.
The forward, who had been widely expected to join Madrid when his existing deal expires on June 30, is now set to sign a new three-year contract with PSG.
Sources have told ESPN that LaLiga are studying whether to report PSG for what they believe to be a breach of UEFA’s financial fair play rules, with a decision likely once Mbappe’s new deal is made official.
On Saturday, LaLiga president Javier Tebas called PSG’s renewal of Mbappe “an INSULT to football.”
Tebas said on Twitter: “What PSG are going to do renewing Mbappe with large quantities of money (who knows where and how they pay it) after posting losses of €700 million in recent seasons and having a wage bill of over €600 million is an INSULT to football. [PSG president Nasser] Al-Khelaifi is as dangerous as the Super League.”
