La Liga president Javier Tebas never misses a chance to pick a fight with Paris Saint-Germain. The Spanish club chief has long had an issue with the Qataris ownership.
In what’s likely a response to the capital club triggering the release clause and taking Ousmane Dembélé from FC Barcelona, Tebas is again at it with PSG.
RMC Sport reports that Tebas has taken a decisive step by announcing its decision to file a formal complaint against PSG to the European Commission.
The complaint stems from La Liga’s concerns that PSG’s financial operations, particularly its significant funding from Qatar, distort the football transfer market and create an uneven playing field.

La Liga loses yet another marketable player. As a result, the Spanish league likely wants to stop losing these players, especially to what Tebas and Co. will consider an inferior competition in Ligue 1.
It will be interesting to see if this complaint goes anywhere or if it’s all for a show so the media and Spanish clubs can see that he will not stand still and take action.
