Paris Saint-Germain’s transfer strategy has been hugely controversial, with Les Rouge-et-Bleu bringing in Neymar from Barcelona for a world-record €222million fee, before they signed Kylian Mbappé on loan from fellow Ligue 1 contenders Monaco, which means they can get around Financial Fair Play by putting his fee off until next year.
