The Premier League has been urged to investigate the impact of Saudi Arabia transfers on Financial Fair Play, following deals from Wolves and Chelsea with the league.
The league has been on something of a spending spree in recent months, acquiring players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, however, it’s the deals with the Premier League that have drawn FFP attention.
A plethora of Chelsea players have been linked with the league, including Hakim Ziyech and Romelu Lukaku, whilst N’Golo Kante has already made the move to the league. Meanwhile, Wolves captain, Ruben Neves is also reportedly on the cusp of a move to the Middle Eastern region.
It comes following the frantic spending spree of Chelsea since their change of ownership after American businessman Todd Boehly took control of the club last year.
Subsequently, the London side was placed on a watchlist by European football’s governing body UEFA – as they sought to place a microscope on the spending of Chelsea.
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville took to social media to state his belief that the situation needs investigating – claiming it impacts the fairness of the league.
The former full back stated: “Any chance the Premier League can look into this Saudi trading like NOW!!!
“Get a Regulator in asap that’s agile enough to stop these things at source! If it doesn’t look right it’s probably not right! Independence is required asap. The Governance of our game is a mess!”
