Paris Saint-Germain have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) to stop Uefa re-examining their decision to clear the club of breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.
European football’s governing body opted to review the investigation in July, having cleared the Ligue 1 champions of contravening FFP a month earlier.
PSG, who in 2017 signed Neymar for a world-record €222-million and Kylian Mbappe on an initial loan before making the deal permanent for €180m, raised funds of around €50m through transfers at the request of Uefa to avoid sanctions for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 financial years.

‘In these circumstances, Cas is unable to provide any further information regarding the matter.’
