The Ligue 1 club were taken over by Oryx Qatar Sports Investments back in 2011 and have since signed a number of the best players in the world for sizeable fees, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani.

"Recently, Manchester City and Paris Saint-German, before that Chelsea, they have money that has not been created [by them] and have been able to get an advantage through this", he told reporters.

Tebas has claimed City have been using Spanish side Girona - the club City's owners bought a 44.3% stake of in August - to blatantly negate financial rules as he suggested the Manchester club had loaned Girona their players below the market rate.

"The LFP strongly condemns the insulting words said today by the Liga president Javier Tebas regarding Paris Saint-Germain", an LFP statement read.

"As they can expect, Manchester City Football Club and City Football Group have sought legal advice and will act accordingly", the statement continued.

Having kept its counsel earlier this week when Tebas revealed he had written to Uefa demanding an investigation into City's spending - which he alleges breaches its Financial Fair Play regulations - CFG broke its silence last night.

Asked if he thought Girona were "cooking the books", the La Liga president added: "They were trying to but they didn't manage to do it". It is not just about PSG but also Manchester City.

Speaking at SoccerEx, Tebas hit out at the behaviour of certain clubs when buying players from La Liga, and believes their accounts demonstrate what is at play.

But City were left furious over accusations made with regards to Pablo Maffeo, Aleix Garcia, Douglas Luiz, Marlos Moreno and Olarenwaju Kayode.

Tebas continued: "I need more money from TV, otherwise Manchester City with its oil will take all these players".

"These unworthy remarks are unbecoming of an institution as respectable and successfui as the Spanish La Liga", the LFP wrote.

"The problem is when the income they report to cover their costs is not real", he said. They were set a limit of 80m euros to spend on their squad by La Liga following an assessment of the club's financial position.
