PSG didn’t violate UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules by signing Lionel Messi, club president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has said. He recently revealed that the club can definitely justify the addition of the 34-year-old to the French club.
According to him, PSG always discuss with its commercial, financial and legal people before taking any decision, therefore they are still within UEFA‘s FFP rules.
He added that Paris Saint Germain only signed the Argentine international because it was financially possible to do so.
His words, “Regarding the financial aspect, I will make it clear: we know the rules of Financial Fair Play and we will always follow the regulations.”
“Before we do anything, we check with our commercial, financial and legal people.”
“We have the capacity to sign him. If we sign Leo, it’s because we can, otherwise we would not have done it.”
“What Leo brings to the club is huge, which you can see just outside. He is a big asset for the club.”
“I hope Leo will not ask for a raise, but what we have is fantastic!”
“In terms of the impact on Ligue 1, I think the championship is going up a level. In TV rights, too, I hope, or in commercial partnerships,”
“Everyone now wants to see Messi’s PSG, which increases the value of other clubs.”
“The other presidents thanked me for the arrival of Leo. We are not only doing this for the club, but also for France and Ligue 1.”
