Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe’s contracts at Paris Saint-Germain could be revoked due to La Liga taking legal action against the Ligue One champions.
Mbappe looked nailed on to move to Real Madrid on a free transfer upon the expiration of his PSG contract this summer.
However, the France star had a change of heart and signed a mammoth new three-year deal at the Parc des Princes, with a salary of €100 million per year.
La Liga are absolutely furious they did not secure the services of one of the world’s best and are making serious strides to bring PSG down, feeling as though the contract is “illegal” and goes against Financial Fair Play regulations.
According to MARCA, the Spanish governing body are on a mission to stop Mbappe’s contract from being validated and have hired lawyer Juan Branco in an attempt to make it happen.
“We are looking for a new decision like the Bosman [law], which liberalised the market [in 1995],” Branco said on the imminent lawsuit at a press conference.
“Now what we want is for the market to be regulated and the [financial] rules of the [Spanish] League, which are very strict, to be expanded throughout Europe.”
Branco, 32, is to ask French sports minister Amelie Oudea-Castera to cancel the contracts of PSG player contracts signed after June 25 2021.
That would also include seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi, who joined PSG on a free transfer and put pen to paper on a two-year deal on 11 August.
Barcelona, who were unable to register Messi’s new deal at the Nou Camp due to not having the funds available, have requested that Branco include the Argentine’s contract.
Branco is confident that La Liga will be successful and is even prepared to take proceedings to the European Commission and potentially the Court of Justice of the European Union if they do not win the case.
