Time is ticking as Jume looms with pressure on PSG to comply with the UEFA Financial Fair-Play ruling.

L'Équipe today confirmed that the the two-chamber Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) deemed that both operations in moving Neymar and Mbappé to the Parc des Princes were "correct" after PSG paid FC Barcelona €222 million to sign the Brazilian striker along with Mbappe's loan move from AS Monaco with an added obligatory 180 million euro compulsory purchase clause.

Despite the ruling on two big summer signings for the Parisian giants still have to balance their books and need to offload players which constitute the value of 70 million euro with these deals needing to be completed by the UEFA deadline of June 30, 2018. Failure to do so would incur a sanction which could see the Ligue 1 excluded form European competition and fined.
