The French outfit needed to sell players to balance their books to avoid problems with UEFA’s regulations. It looks like they’ve managed it.
Paris Saint-Germain had to sell players by the end of this month to meet UEFA’s Financial Fair Play requirements and everything points to the French club having hit the target to comply with the rules thanks to the sales of Weah to Lille and Diaby to Bayer Leverkusen.
PSG player sales hit the FFP spot
Leverkusen paid 15 million euros for Moussa Diaby, while George Weah’s son Timothy moved to Lille for nine million. And those two deals are in addition to the 24 million euros brought in for the sale of Lo Celos to Betis, 10 million from Lokomotiv Moscow for former Sevilla player Krychowiak, six for Yacine Adli from Girondins and two from RC Lens for Gaetan Robail. In total that’s 66 million euros, satisfying the 60 million requirement in player sales set by UEFA.
PSG to continue selling... and buying
However, PSG aren’t going to stop there. They plan to move on Stanley Nsoki and Thomas Meunier. The Belgian international is highly sought after in England, where Arsenal and Manchester United are said to be keen. PSG haven’t stopped the other side of the equation either: the signings of Ander Herrera and Pablo Sarabia are expected to be made official next week.
