Javier Tebas launched into a scathing attack against PSG at the Soccerex Global Convention

Controversial Spanish league boss Javier Tebas says he will continue to speak out until the likes of Paris St Germain and Manchester City are properly held to account by UEFA for what he terms "financial doping". These last few years, Manchester City has paid almost £1 billion for players.

'What we have done is caught them peeing in the bed, or the swimming pool, ' Tebas said at Soccerex's Global Convention, in reference to the supposedly underhand nature of Neymar's transfer. Neymar has peed from diving board.

"It is important that UEFA doesn't just look at the most recent player transfers, but at PSG's history of non-compliance". PSG, Manchester City and in the past from Chelsea, they have money that has not been created [by them] and they have been able to get an advantage through this. We believe the European Union need to investigate, too.

However, UEFA subsequently moved to clarify that City were not under investigation and called any reports stating otherwise "unsubstantiated".

"They have not said they will never have one", Tebas said.

The French professional football league immediately defended PSG and said only UEFA could rule on whether clubs met fair play rules.

The club source denied to ESPN FC that any such secret agreement had taken place and that City's reduced sanction, after an initial fine of £49m and squad restrictions, resulted from the club proving to the governing body it was now playing by the rules.

PSG, meanwhile, were quick to respond to the allegations at a press conference for Kylian Mbappe on Wednesday. We welcome Uefa into our offices with great pleasure.

Ronaldo and Messi have been two of the best players in the world for much of the last decade, enhancing the La Liga brand with their superb performances for Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Having compared the various income streams of Europe's major clubs, Tebas asked: "PSG has a lot more from sponsorship than Manchester United but how can this be possible?" They have agreed on sponsorships that are above market price.

City hit back with a strong statement confirming they are seeking legal action against the Spanish league after Tebas also criticised their financial structure earlier in the week.

"What happens when this money coming into PSG and Man City comes into European football, there is an inflation of salaries and transfer fees". It's never ending. All Nasser [Al-Khelaifi] has to do is open the gas tap.
