Football union wants EU to ban high transfer fees after Neymar deal

A football union wants the European Commission to intervene after Neymar's €222 million transfer to Paris St Germain.

The record 222 million-euro that fee Paris St Germain is paying to acquire Neymar from Barcelona shows just how wrong the transfer system is, FIFPro said on Friday (4 August).

“The world record transfer of Brazilian Neymar from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain is the latest example of how football is ever more the domain of a select group of rich, mostly European-based clubs,” FIFPro General Secretary Theo van Seggelen said in a statement.

“FIFPro is calling on the European Commission to investigate the flow of money via transfer fees within the EU territory to understand their impact on competitive balance in the region,” he added.

Footballers ask Commission to abolish transfer system

The world union for footballers called for the transfer system to be “abolished” on Friday (18 September), and slapped in an EU legal challenge to FIFA that could ban transfer windows and drive down the price of players.

A Commission spokesman declined to comment on Neymar’s transfer fee during a news conference on Thursday.
