Barcelona seems to have triggered the anger of the French side, though.

As reported by Barca Universal, a legal complaint was made regarding Lionel Messi’s move to PSG in 2021. The Court of the European Union has now heard the appeal and will soon deliver a ruling.

The complaint is regarding PSG’s adherence to Financial Fair Play regulations and how their spending has reduced the competition between clubs in Europe.

PSG were one of eight clubs to be fined this year for breaching FFP rules.

PSG have become a true financial heavyweight in European football since Qatar Sports Investment took over. The French side have lured many big-name players to France, including Neymar from Barcelona.

Questions over their business practices have lingered over the years, though, and the new ruling by the court could soon reveal a lot more.
