- Manchester City's earth-shattering acquisition of Erling Haaland has not gone down well in Spain
- Haaland joined the Cityzens from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth £51 million, with the amount paid for the 21-year-old expected to increase to £85.5 million
- La Liga chief Javier Tebas was not impressed with this turn of events, and will make an official complaint to UEFA citing financial impropriety
Already inspiring terror in their opponents in the Premier League, Manchester City's Erling Haaland has not gone down well in Spain.
La Liga boss Javier Tebas was reported as intending to approach the continent's football governing body to lay an official complaint.
According to SPORTBible, the 59-year-old has confirmed that he will pick a bone with UEFA concerning the amount of money that City are spending, with Haaland's signing. The Norweigian hitman Haaland joined the Cityzens from Borussia Dortmund in a deal reportedly worth £51 million, with the amount paid for the 21-year-old expected to increase to £85.5 million.
"As for City, [Mino] Raiola made it very clear when it came to commission. They must have done something, because Haaland asked clubs for more than just the €60m that has been paid. This week, we will complain over PSG, last week we did it with City."
A couple of weeks ago, Yahoo UK reported that La Liga also complained to UEFA about French superstar Kylian Mbappe's deal with PSG after he snubbed Real Madrid to remain in Ligue 1.
"I'm not standing up for Madrid over the Mbappe issue, I'm standing up for European football. Consenting to these operations outside the market when those clubs are... it's more dangerous than the Super League.
"PSG are now going to end up with losses of €200m, they already had a loss of €300m... and now they go and renew Mbappe with those amounts. They're going to have to cheat, I don't know if that's by paying outside of France or by getting a lot of sponsorships, which they already do.
UEFA is said to have dismissed the Mbappe complaint.
