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.
