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

La Liga president Javier Tebas says he is anxious about Paris Saint-Germain being able to buy Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi after their controversial transfer of Neymar this summer.

City were taken over by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008 while PSG have been owned by the Gulf state of Qatar, via its Qatar Sports Investments fund, since 2011. "These past few years Manchester City have paid out almost a thousand million on players, PSG £950m".

Tebas insisted that the Spanish league dealt severely with clubs who contravened their rules regarding financing.

"Some of the loan prices were too low", Tebas, speaking at the Soccerex conference in Manchester this Wednesday, said.

Tebas is understood to have already called on UEFA to investigate City for alleged financial doping however, the governing body now has no plans to launch an enquiry.

Citing Monday's statement by European football's governing body confirming there was no FFP probe into City, a spokeswoman said: "We note the public comments made by Mr Tebas today and earlier this week".

Tebas described City as "peeing in the pool" in reference to the vast amounts of money they have invested in manager Pep Guardiola's squad.

North Korea claims it can load hydrogen bomb onto missile
North Korea's sixth nuclear test - probably its largest so far - sends out one clear political signal. The blast is the most powerful to date and caused a significant natural disaster .

"The statements made by Mr. Tebas are completely false and, in part, pure fiction", said the club through an official statement.

Tebas argues that because clubs such as City and French giants PSG have accrued a disproportionate amount of funding he believes is not reflective of footballing success, action should now be taken to stop them "destructuring" European football.

'As you would expect, Manchester City and the City Football Group are seeking appropriate legal counsel and will act accordingly on that advice'.

In response, UEFA launched an investigation to see whether the club has broken FPP rules.

"These unworthy remarks are unbecoming of an institution as respectable and successfui as the Spanish La Liga", the LFP wrote.

"When contracts are not reflecting real market incomes - as in money not derived directly from football - then we take action". "The transfers are merely the result of years of financial doping at PSG".
