This remark was a bold swipe at the Parisians, who are known for their extravagant spending habits. PSG, as one of the biggest spenders in European soccer, has faced scrutiny for its financial practices in the past. With the signings of superstars like Neymar Jr. and Mbappe, the club has become a target for critics who believe they are inflating the transfer market.

Tebas, representing the interests of Spanish clubs, has been at the forefront of this criticism. It is most likely this remark by the Spanish League boss won’t go unnoticed by Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Moreover, Javier Tebas has not only exerted influence over the financial affairs of PSG. He also expressed his stance on the Mbappe-PSG-Real Madrid saga.

Despite this, Mbappe’s contract with PSG is set to expire next summer, which means he will be free to make a move and could potentially join Los Blancos. La Liga president Javier Tebas also weighed in on this possibility, stating in a previous interview, “Kylian Mbappé will be in La Liga next year. The probability is 70% – 80%”. It will be fascinating to see how this situation unfolds.
