Football Leaks set off the scandal again by leaking information with the German newspaper Der Spiegel’. That Manchester City and PSG had broken the financial Fair play with the help of Infantino and Platini.
In the reports, obtained by the German newspaper, it is said that they received 2,700 million Paris Saint-Germain and 1,800 million euros Manchester City, fraudulently, to increase their budgets and pay for better players. To do this, they used “fictitious sponsorship contracts” from state institutions, such as the Qatar Tourist Office.
Let’s remember that the Financial Fair Play is that teams can not spend more than they produce, and this concept Al-Khelaífi passes it through the lining. The club that commands the Sheikh would have received the sum of 1,800 million euros from the government of Qatar to finance transfers such as Neymar and Mbappé, completely breaking with the financial Fair Play of UEFA. In 2012, when Infantino serving as secretary general, the document that guaranteed the cash injection was signed without any problems, just as that Platini helped more than one occasion to Al-Khelaifi to avoid legal problems with the rules of European football.
Manchester City, also accused by the German newspaper, had a case similar to what happened with the club in Paris, planning secret meetings with the leaders of the UEFA to avoid problems with the money that came from Persian Gulf countries.
In 2014, both clubs were forced by UEFA to pay fines close to 60 million euros for breaking the rules of fair play. What made UEFA leave the nuisance momentarily. The PSG and Manchester City continued to spend money on projects that only work in the Fantasy, while the country where they get all the millions did get something important like the 2022 World Cup.
