La Liga wants Uefa to investigate Manchester City's spending and expand its newly launched probe into whether Paris Saint-Germain have breached Financial Fair Play rules.
Uefa have received a letter signed by Javier Tebas, the Spanish league's president, asking for its current investigation into whether Paris Saint-Germain have breached Financial Fair Play regulations be expanded to include City, as per the Guardian.
Tebas wrote separate letters to European football's governing body on 22 August requesting investigations into City and PSG.
As per the Telegraph, making public La Liga's request, Tebas said City and the Qatari-owned PSG are benefiting from state financing that "distorts European competitions" and "is irreparably harming the football industry" in the wake of the French club's signings of Neymar for a world-record €222m (£198m), and Kylian Mbappé on an initial loan with an option to buy the player for a reported £166m fee.
He also said both PSG and City, owned by Sheikh Mansour - a member of the ruling family of Abu Dhabi and its deputy prime minister and minister of presidential affairs - "benefit from sponsorships that make no economic sense and lack any fair value" to help them comply with FFP.
Despite the requests, Uefa has confirmed that City are not being investigated.
Contacted by ESPN FC, Uefa said: "There is no investigation into Manchester City with regards to Financial Fair Play regulations. Any reports mentioning such an investigation are unsubstantiated."
In the summer window, Guardiola oversaw an initial £226m outlay on Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Danilo, Kyle Walker, and Benjamin Mendy. But City's net spend was £133m as the club made a total £93m of sales as Wilfried Bony, Samir Nasri, KelechiIheanacho, Nolito, Fernando, Aaron Mooy, AleksandarKolarov, Jadon Sancho, EnesUnal and Oliver Ntcham all left for a fee.
As FFP rules allow all clubs to make a £30m loss – add-ons are not factored in until triggered – and transfer prices are amortised over the course of a player's contract, City would appear to have no concerns regarding any breach.
In 2014, PSG and City were the main targets of the first round of FFP sanctions. Both had €20m of their Champions League prize money deducted and had limits imposed on their spending and squad size for matches.
