Paris Saint-Germain's summer spending has been slammed by a journalist on social media, who also hit out at UEFA for giving the Ligue 1 giants leeway in the transfer market.

PSG have already brought in Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, and Georginio Wijnaldum, who all arrived on a free transfer this summer, and Mauricio Pochettino's side are inching closer to a move for Lionel Messi, who is now a free agent.

The club also spent a massive £54m to sign Achraf Hakimi from Inter, and the club's transfer activity has been questioned by Anthony Lopopolo, who also hit out at UEFA's "charade".

He tweeted: "How can PSG give Neymar €30M per season, while paying €60M for Hakimi and €75M in pre-tax wages to Messi, Donnarumma, Wijnaldum, and Ramos, and even *think* about re-signing Mbappe in the same year it's expected to lose €204M in revenue? UEFA, just end the charade."

In another tweet, he added: "French newspaper L'Equipe in January: "Selling players becomes Leonardo's main mission." PSG sporting director Leonardo: *yawning face emoji*"

Lopopolo continued: "UEFA has done absolutely nothing to repair its image as a morally bankrupt organization with zero interest in making the game more sustainable. It has punished lesser clubs for far less egregious market activity than PSG's. Many times, perception is indeed reality."
