Bayern President Calls Out PSG over FFP Claim

The President of Bayern Munich has hit out at Champions League rivals PSG, stating that he doesn't know how they are abiding by UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules following the club's busy summer in the transfer market.

Speaking on SportBild's Bayern Munich podcast - Herbert Hainer has opened up on his curiosity around the Paris club's business this summer with signings such as Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos amongst others requiring hefty wage packets.

"As PSG is currently upgrading, we will take a very close look at how that can be reconciled with UEFA rules. We stick to it, then we expect other clubs to do the same. I'm not too quick to judge Paris, but the purchasing policy is already huge. It's not the transfer fees, it's the salaries."

You can understand his point. Where as Bayern Munich have kept things tight in the transfer window and other teams across Europe suffering a similar situation, it seems PSG's business has somewhat gone under the radar, signing players for nominal fees or free transfers.

"When I hear that Messi earns €40 million (£34m/$47m) net, that's €80m (£69m/$94m) gross. In addition, [Achraf] Hakimi, Ramos, Donnarumma - a lot comes together."

The whole debate around FFP will continue with UEFA quashing rumours it will go out the window, confirming earlier this year that it will be 'going nowhere'.
