“Paris Saint-Germain recalls that the club has been monitored by UEFA for four years in the framework of the settlement signed in 2014 between the two parties and from which it was released in 2017.

“In fact, the European body has a clear and transparent vision of the financial state of the club, and in particular the amounts of multi-year contracts that bind it to its partners. The procedure is ongoing.

“Paris Saint-Germain is in permanent contact with its interlocutors at UEFA and will present calmly before the governing body of European football on April 20 to present the case.”
