Barcelona has threatened to report French giant PSG to FIFA in a bid to stop them from completing a deal for their player Neymar.
Barcelona expect Neymar to return to training on Wednesday, but are ready to push for a Financial Fair Play (FFP) investigation if Paris St-Germain pay the £198m release clause for the Brazilian forward.
Reports earlier claimed that Neymar will undergo a medical in Qatar on Tuesday with PSG hopeful of completing a deal for the Brazilian forward before the start of the French Ligue 1 2017/2018 season.
Barca chief, Josep Maria Bartomeu said last week that Neymar would be staying, his comments came after reports that PSG had triggered the release clause, which would be a world record fee for a player and should that sum be offered, the 24-time Spanish champions will ask UEFA to consider whether the French club would be in breach of FFP regulations.
Meanwhile, La Liga president Javier Tebas has come out in support of Barcelona also threatening a legal response against PSG, if the European football’s governing body fail to take action.
In an interview with Mundo Deportivo at the weekend, Tebas said: “We will make a complaint about PSG because they infringe UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules and also the European Union’s competition rules.
We will make a complaint to UEFA and if they don’t do anything we will take it to the competition tribunals in Switzerland and Brussels and, from there, we don’t rule out going through the courts in France and Spain.”
