PSG hit Man City with Anelka compo claim

PSG are demanding £1 million from Manchester City for former striker Nicolas Anelka.

PSG are demanding £1 million from Manchester City for former striker Nicolas Anelka.

The Sunday Mirror says City have been hit by a £1million demand from Paris St Germain for Anelka – eight years after they signed the striker from the French club.

PSG are claiming that the terms of the ­£13.6m deal ­stipulated that City paid the fee in euros ­rather than pounds ­sterling.

And because City ­financed the transfer in sterling, it meant PSG lost out on the improving ­exchange rate of the ­euro. City insist there was no such agreement.

And the cash row will be settled in the High Court if the two clubs fail to strike an agreement at a pre-trial arbitration ­meeting scheduled to take place in Manchester this week.
