Uefa rule PSG must make transfer profits to escape sanctions

Paris Saint-Germain appear to have been given a Financial Fair Play (FFP) lifeline.

The Ligue 1 champions have been under investigation for breaching Uefa’s FFP regulations.

European football’s governing body have been scrutinising PSG’s sponsorship deals, which have been deemed vastly over market value.

However, the club are set to escape any immediate sanctions.

According to L’Équipe, PSG will be told they have to make €60m from player sales before the end of the month to avoid further punishment.

If the French club fail to raise the funds, the investigation will be re-opened and the club will likely face big sanctions ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The Uefa investigation predates last summer’s big money  moves for Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, which are still being looked into.

PSG have a little way to go yet before they are in the clear.
