The English Premier League’s spending has angered La Liga president, Javier Tebas and the 60-year-old has now threatened to report the EPL to the European governing body, UEFA.

Tebas believes that the money spent by clubs in the English top flight is inflating transfer fees across Europe as teams are now paying more than the actual value of a player.

Chelsea established the record for the most money spent in a single summer with a £273 million investment, and 13 of the top 20 spending clubs in Europe were Premier League teams.

Javier Tebas issues Barcelona salary warning

Meanwhile, Javier Tebas has advised Barcelona to keep reducing their wage bill following the Catalan giants’ ongoing financial issues, Football Espana reports.

Barcelona has been forced to offload players during the 2022 summer transfer window, to release funds to sign new stars, and to register club contracts.

Barcelona are still fighting to stay on the right side of La Liga’s Financial Fair Play rules and reducing their wage cap is the best way to stay out of trouble with the Spanish league body.
