PSG chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi sues media outlets over illegal transfer payment claim

Paris, France: Paris Saint-Germain owner Nasser Al Khelaifi is suing three media outlets over an article suggesting he requested an illegal payment be made to an agent involved in Javier Pastore's transfer from Palermo in 2011.

Al Khelaifi's lawyers issued a statement Tuesday announcing the action against French online site Mediapart, British newspaper The Guardian and German daily Der Spiegel.

The outlets are accused of not allowing Al Khelaifi a chance to reply fully to their questions by refusing to give him a copy of a letter at the source of the article.

Al Khelaifi's lawyers say they wrote to the three publications casting doubt on the authenticity of this letter, and asked to see it to prove the point.
