After months of speculations about the future of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar at Paris Saint-Germain, the reigning Ligue 1 champions have issued a statement regarding the allegations they will have to sell one of their stars
The French newspaper, L’Equite, have been the first one to state the Parisians will have to renounce their headline performers due to the UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations.
After making the duo the two most expensive players of all-time, it was though PSG will have to sell one of them to balance the books.
Soon, the media all across Europe have been reporting PSG won’t be able to keep holds of their stalwarts unless they break the FFP rules.
Furthermore, this Friday, L’Equipe dropped the bombshell by saying the Parisians have already reconciled with losing one of Neymar or Mbappe to prevent UEFA from implementing sanctions.
Now, Paris Saint-Germain have released a counterstatement via their official website, accusing L’Equipe of making false allegations.
“In an article published this Friday evening on its website, L’Equipe dares to say ‘PSG is ready to lose Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr to avoid [FFP] sanctions.
“Beyond denying this misinformation, ridiculous and only aimed to create once again a tough relationship between our club and media, PSG is wondering, once more, about the main goal of L’Equipe and its underlying thought about its editing work concerning PSG.
“There are so many examples of this kind of news aiming to bring a bad atmosphere around the club. Last one in date, last Wednesday, matchday against Strasbourg, with a frontage which pretended there was a ‘Cavani issue.’
“In passing, regarding the incredible amount of frontpages involving PSG in this daily newspaper, proof of the club’s fame, PSG is asking itself about the schizophrenic behavior of L’Equipe and its hierarchy.”
Widely-recognized as the most devastating attacking tandem on the planet, the Frenchman and the Brazilian have notched 78 goals and provided 26 assists altogether since their blockbuster transfers in the summer of 2017.
