New reports made it known that La Liga giants Barcelona were hindered from bringing Angel Di Maria into Camp Nou on deadline day as a result of UEFA rules.
The former Manchester United player is deemed surplus to requirements at PSG and the club were trying to offload him to recoup some cash following their massive spendings on Neymar from Barcelona during the past summer transfer window.
Neymar’s departure from Camp Nou left the Spanish club with little time to find a replacement for him, and Argentina international Di Maria was considered one of the few classic stars available for sale.
But according to Radio Monte Carlo, an investigation into PSG’s compliance with Financial Fair Play blocked the player’s exit.
The Paris club brought in Monaco youngster Kylian Mbappe after splashing huge cash on Neymar to break the record set by Manchester United last summer.
Following their spendings, suspicions were aroused and investigations were carried out.
Barcelona, however, signed Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for £113m after Liverpool rejected up to three different bids for Brazilian superstar Philippe Coutinho.
Coutinho himself was keen on moving to Spain and handed in a transfer request to force his way through, but Liverpool failed to change their stance on him.
The Catalan giants are however expected to come back for him next summer and should ignore Di Maria.
