It still seems weird that a newly promoted team from Ligue 2 (even with the billionaire owner) is able to thrown around that kind of money and attract quality players.

If this is right, wouldn't Monaco run afoul of this? They can't have much revenue having just been promoted and playing in a small stadium, but they just spent a ton of money. I thought that Malaga was going to be banned from next year's CL regardless of their qualification for this reason.
