The ink is long dry on Kylian Mbappé’s contract, but he is still a Paris Saint-Germain player. The Spanish La Liga now wants to take legal action against this.

The Spanish Football League continues to take action against the French top club Paris Saint-Germain.

After an official complaint to UEFA in June, now also with legal means. In an application to the administrative court in Paris, La Liga demanded the termination of superstar Kylian Mbappé’s new PSG contract.

His stay in the French capital had also been the trigger for the complaint to UEFA. The reason: La Liga considers the international’s new multi-million euro contract to be a violation of national and international financial fair play rules.

Mbappé had been courted by Spanish top club Real Madrid for over a year, with everything looking like a transfer on a free transfer at the beginning of the summer.

But PSG convinced the striker to re-sign with an outrageous offer – which La Liga, whose president Javier Tebas had previously fired against PSG on several occasions, refused to accept.

La Liga also wants to go to international courts

The application now before a French court was confirmed by Juan Branco, a well-known French lawyer representing La Liga in the matter. It was to be expected that the court would reject the application directly on Friday, he told the AFP news agency.

The application was rejected for lack of urgency. Now it is a question of whether the facts of the case are relevant to the decision. This assessment by the courts could be delayed until the upcoming season.

“Our steps in France are meeting with fierce resistance,” Branco explained. But they are only the “first step before we approach the European courts, within a few months.”

This is what Branco is asking for in detail with Mbappé

In detail, La Liga had demanded the annulment of “administrative decisions” in the rubber-stamping of Mbappé’s contract by the French Professional Football League (LFP).

Branco explained that PSG had violated the “criteria and indicators” of the LFP and also of the DNCG, as also stipulated by UEFA. This had led to a direct disadvantage for La Liga.

He also accused PSG of presenting “distorted balance sheets” and of receiving money from sponsors who pay more than is customary.
