UEFA HAS ORDERED accusations that Paris Saint-Germain has broken its financial fair play rules to be referred to its financial unit “for further investigation”.

European football’s governing body initially opened an investigation into the Qatari-owned club’s spending in September 2017 under pressure from some of Europe’s biggest clubs after the French club signed Brazilian midfielder Neymar for a world-record €222 million.

Within weeks the club had also agreed a deal to sign teenage striker Kylian Mbappe from Monaco for €180 million.

In June, Uefa’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) closed its investigation only to re-open it just a month later.

Uefa said on Monday the case had now been referred “back to the CFCB Investigatory Chamber for further investigation”.
