Angel Di Maria's move to PSG is being reportedly held up by Financial Fair Play


Well, well, well! Just when we thought that Angel Di Maria’s deal to Paris St Germain is done and dusted, a new controversy has erupted. According to reports in Spanish newspaper Marca, Di Maria’s move to the French Champions is held up by the restrictions of Financial Fair Play(FFP).

The report claims that there is still a long way to go before the Argentine midfielder is given the green flag to join the Paris side. Earlier real’s President Florentino Pérez and the PSG president, Nasser Al Khelaïfi had an agreement in place reached during their meeting in Spain that the French side wouldn’t finalise the deal for with Di Maria without Real’s consent.

It now appears that UEFA and the Financial Fair Play have become a potential stumbling block for the Ligue One Champions to go ahead and finalize the deal for the 26 year old. PSG were hit with a €60m fine for breaking the FFP rules at the end of last season and they now must adhere with the strict rules implemented by UEFA.

The Parisians knew their maximum net spend for the summer was €50 million but they have already exceeded that figure by signing David Luiz from Chelsea. It now means that the nouveau riche French side have to sell one of their prized to pave the way for Di Maria to join the club.

  1. then that means there is agreen light for the red devils to sign di maria… :)

  2. I hope not, he’s no better than average, he’s overpriced and, when you consider his liking for running around in circles and falling over, he isn’t very different to what we already have. Steer clear and get Vidal.

  3. Looks more like united is concentrating more on kit deals than than signing players. Just get it done and let mew recruits jell with the other players on the pre season. Stop talking and more action

  4. Sign Vidal as soon as possible & try for Reus.
