UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) will review its decision to clear French side Paris Saint-Germain of breaking Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules after breaking the bank for Neymar and subsequently agreeing a ‘huge’ deal for Kylian Mbappe.PSG signed Neymar for a world record fee of 222 million euros from Barcelona and also sealed a loan move for French teenager Mbappe from AS Monaco with an obligation to buy for a fee of something in the region of 180 million euros, according to media reports.The club were cleared of breaking FFP rules last month following a UEFA investigation but UEFA says judges on its club finance monitoring panel will review a decision by investigators that PSG’s accounts to June 2017 complied with “Financial Fair Play” rules.FFP rules ban clubs from spending more than their generated revenue, a policy introduced to prevent rich owners from trying to buy success and distorting the transfer market.The rules oversee spending on transfers and wages by all clubs which qualify for the Champions League and Europa League. UEFA can exclude clubs in serious cases. The review adds pressure on the French champions which UEFA asked last month to raise cash selling players before its latest financial year closed last weekend.Teams can be thrown out of European competition for breach of rules but UEFA has in the past negotiated settlements with offending clubs.”In light of the decision of the CFCB chief investigator to close the investigation into PSG, the chairman of the CFCB has decided to send this decision for review by the adjudicatory chamber,” UEFA said in a statement.advertisement”This announcement does not pre-judge in any way the result of the review to be conducted by the adjudicatory chamber of the CFCB,” it added.PSG sold midfielder Javier Pastore to Roma last week for 24.5 million euros ($28.6 million) to help balance accounts made lopsided by the world-record deal to buy Neymar from Barcelona last August.UEFA investigators also said Qatar-owned PSG overstated the market value of sponsor deals from the emirate.(With inputs from agencies)
