Today it’s happened to Barca, tomorrow it could happen to Real Madrid, it’s happened to Atletico Madrid,” Tebas, the La Liga chairman, told Mundo Deportivo.Should PSG bid, and then pay, the 222 million euros needed to prise Neymar from the Catalan capital, they would struggle to meet UEFA’s financial fair play conditions that limit a team to losses of no more than 30 million euros over a three-year cycle.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsAnd that is despite a mega-money sponsorship deal with the Qatar tourism board.According to Tebas, “no-one believes” the commercial revenue figures presented by PSG to justify their spending.
