Manchester City are reportedly threatening legal action against La Liga president Javier Tebas after comments he made about their spending.
Not only did he take aim at Pep Guardiola’s side, he also took aim at Paris Saint Germain who he criticised over the Neymar Jr deal.
La Liga actually attempted to block that deal going through and asked UEFA to step in and deal with the absurd spending.
Though that was never going to come off and the deal for Neymar went through, as did several high profile deals for Manchester City.
The club spent over £100million on Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy alone before adding Ederson, Bernardo Silva, Danilo and a few more.
Following both clubs spending, the Javier Tebas described their spending as “peeing in the pool”.
Reports also claim that there is set to be even more comments made by Tebas to be released this evening.
Now, that has gone too far for Manchester City who are considering legal action against the Spanish boss.
City responded to claims with the following in a statement.
“Uefa’s statement of the 4th of September is clear and based on accurate information.”
“By contrast, Mr. Tebas’ statements are ill-informed and in parts pure fiction.
“As you would expect, Manchester City Football Club and the City Football Group are seeking appropriate legal counsel and will act accordingly on that advice.”

Man City prepare mega Sanchez bid
It has now been well documented just how close Manchester City came to signing Alexis Sanchez but they are not done there.
They are now preparing another offer for the Arsenal star that will come in the January transfer window and could see him move.
That will be because the players contract expires in the summer and Arsenal will be looking to make as much money as possible if he wont sign a new deal.
