LaLiga file another complaint about PSG and Man City ruining football

This is going to go on and on, isn't it?

LaLiga have confirmed they are planning to take legal action against Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain for "continuously breaching the current regulations of financial fair play."

The Spanish league's chief, Javier Tebas, has often spoken out against the spending power both City and PSG possess and is now prepared to take their case to the courts of the European Union.

Tebas' concerns have become more apparent in recent weeks after City confirmed the signing of Erling Haaland, while PSG tied down Kylian Mbappe to a new contract - both of those on mega-money deals.

After Mbappe's extortionate terms were revealed, Tebas and LaLiga filed a complaint against PSG with UEFA, adding to their other complaint about Pep Guardiola's side in April, as per Marca.

The LaLiga boss accused PSG of "destroying the ecosystem of European football" after Mbappe signed a three-year contract worth a preposterous amount of £650,000 per week.

"They are going to have to cheat," he said during an event on Monday.

"I don't know if paying outside the French environment or fattening up the sponsorships a lot. We are not going to allow a European team to destroy the ecosystem of European football.

"It's not a problem of French football but of European football. We want Ligue 1 to be a sustainable competition. It's not good for the industry. Our claim regarding the PSG case has already been drafted and we will be filing it to UEFA in the coming days.

"I believe this is what we have to do to defend European football and Spanish football and we are going to do it."

Tebas' claims have since been refuted by plenty of people, including the head of the French football league.
