His decision to remain in Paris ends Real Madrid’s transfer interest in him this summer but the knock on impact in Madrid has been immediately felt.
La Liga have just realised this statement confirming they will file a complaint against PSG with UEFA, French and EU authorities in relation to Kylian Mbappe's reported new contract: "It is scandalous that a club who have lost €220m can complete such a deal." pic.twitter.com/cvqp9aXCzO

La Liga president Javier Tebas labelled the extension as an ‘insult to football’ due to PSG’s previous financial losses in the last two seasons.
Lo que va a hacer el PSG renovando a Mbappé con grandes cantidades de dinero (a saber dónde y cómo las paga) despues de dar pérdidas por 700M€ en las últimas temporadas y tener mas 600M€ de masa salarial, es un INSULTO al fútbol. Al-Khelafi es tan peligroso como la Superliga. pic.twitter.com/sZ1Y1TaSbK

Tebas is set for a central role in the coming weeks as a legal case is brought to UEFA, French and EU authorities based on a claim of the contract not adhering to FFP guidelines.
The move is expected to reopen a debate of PSG’s ownership structure, with Tebas and La Liga both questioning the role of QSI, and club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi in the deal.
