PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN have issued an astonishing denial over claims they are ready to sell either Kylian Mbappe or Neymar to avoid a Financial Fair Play penalty.

French newspaper L'Equipe published an article late on Friday night suggesting the Ligue 1 giants are considering cashing in on one of their stars to avoid breaking Uefa refulations.

The 2017 signing of Neymar and Mbappe raised eyebrows across Europe give the investment in both was close to £380million.

And Uefa are understood to be looking closely at the French club's business model to ensure they are not skirting around the rules over FFP.

But within minutes of the article being published, PSG took the unusual step of publishing a stinging denial of the claims.

And they went on to accuse the newspaper, the biggest sports title in France, of waging a deliberate campaign against them.

The statement said: "In an article published this Friday night on its website, L'Equipe dares to state that 'PSG is ready to lose Kylian Mbappé or Neymar Jr to avoid sanctions (financial fair play)' ...

"Beyond denying with the utmost firmness these claims totally erroneous, ridiculous and only likely to recreate a climate of great tensions between the Club and this media, Paris Saint-Germain wonders, once more, on the L'Equipe's intellectual honesty and the ulterior motives of its editorial line concerning Paris Saint-Germain.

"Examples abound of a treatment devoid of equilibrium and which aims only to spread a deleterious atmosphere.

"Last example to date, last Wednesday, the day of the match in Strasbourg, with a "one" that claimed to sell a so-called "malaise Cavani".
