UEFA are going to ease the rules on FFP:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/32784375

European football's governing body is preparing to relax the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules it introduced in 2011 to stop clubs from overspending.

In an interview with French radio station RTL , Uefa president Michel Platini said FFP was "working well" but would be "eased" this summer.

This followed a report in Le Parisien newspaper on Sunday that said "significant changes" are on the table.

Manchester City and Paris St-Germain were fined last year for breaching FFP.

The guiding principle of FFP is that clubs should stay within their means when it comes to buying and remunerating players: central to this is the so-called " "break-even requirement" .

Had good intentions but it was very, very flawed.

Looks like UEFA have lost in the courts - sure they will push the changes through somehow.

Financial fair play: Court imposes order to block new Uefa rules

A Belgian court has imposed an interim order blocking European football governing body Uefa from activating new Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

The Court of First Instance referred a case brought by several claimants to the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

The case challenged plans to cut the deficit clubs are permitted from 45m euros (£32m) to 30m euros (£21.32m).
