Chelsea helped rivals by selling David Luiz to PSG


According to reports in France, PSG were unable to sign Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid due to UEFA’s financial fair plaay rules.

The French newspaper Le 10 sport reported that Laurent Blanc was desperate to recruit new defensive signings for his side. However, President Nasser Al-Khelaifi wanted Di Maria from Real Madrid to provide more attacking options for the French Champions.

Eventually Laurent Blanc got his way in the end and PSG signed the Brazillian defender from Chelsea due to the financial restrictions. This left United unchallenged in the race to sign Di Maria.

Salvatore Sirigu commented on the situation by saying “Financial fair play is not a subject I know very well, although I think the clubs that have the ways to become stronger should be free to do so. However, we still have a very good level, even without Angel Di Maria. We still have Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani.”
