Neymar to PSG is an 'unusual set of events', says Richard Scudamore

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has said there are no plans to televise matches at 3pm despite the growing number of supporters watching games via online streams.

PSG snapped up the Brazil global from Barcelona for a fee of £198m last week, breaking the previous transfer record by more than double.

"I've been around for a long time - 19 years doing this - and when I started Manchester United won it three times in a row".

But Scudamore on Wednesday said he wasn't sad to see United's milestone deal for one player eclipsed, and reckoned PSG's mammoth layout won't be matched anytime soon.

"But until such time as the conditions are favourable [it won't happen] - and I don't see how those conditions are going to be favourable, because we've got to get the fans relatively comfortable with the prospect and at the minute they are entirely uncomfortable with the prospect, therefore it won't be happening".

"So really it is a sort of solidarity issue for us in terms of the rest of football, and I think that the Saturday 3 p.m. window will remain protected". The Qataris - who own PSG - have suddenly decided they want to make a statement.

"I can't see anything like that (in the Premier League)", Scudamore told BBC Radio 5 live. "When the previous record was £89 million (Paul Pogba), to suddenly go to £200 million that's something else going on there".

No world records have been set but Premier League clubs have been spending significant sums of money this summer.

He continued: "The reality is there are pressures everywhere, fans want their clubs to go sign players, always have done".

"We have rules in place that ensure the clubs are sustainable, clearly you can not pay the absolute top dollar for every player". "The game has always spent what it generates and that gets reinvested back - mainly in playing talent but also in stadia developments and stadium improvements - so I am confident the clubs are sustainable".
