Paris Saint-Germain have avoided Financial Fair Play punishment and have the freedom to spend this summer as a result.
  • Spending was limited last summer
  • Big arrivals expected with more room
  • Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe could leave

WHAT HAPPENED? The Parisians posted €369 million (£324m/$401m) in losses last year, well over UEFA's limit of €60m (£53m/$65m). They were hit with a €10m (£9m/$11m) fine for doing so, and could face further punishment if they breach rules again. However, record revenues of nearly €800m (£702m/$868m) should bring the club within the limits, and without the threat of sanctions, the club are set for a big summer, according to Le Parisien.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: PSG's spending was curbed last summer, with the club loaning out a number of players and failing to make a marquee signing. That appears set to change in the coming months.

AND WHAT'S MORE: The Parisians have already reportedly lined up a few targets, including young French stars Rando Kolo Muani, Marcus Thuram and Kouadio Kone. One of Lionel Messi or Kylian Mbappe could also depart to free up even more cash.
