UEFA will meet later this month to discuss potential Financial Fair Play breaches by Paris Saint-Germain, Sky Sports News understands.
European football's governing body will discuss the case on Friday, April 20 in the latest of a series of meetings following the launch of the investigation last year.
PSG are being investigated for potential FFP breaches following the signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe last summer.
Neymar joined from Barcelona for a world-record fee of £200m, while Kylian Mbappe arrived from Monaco on loan, with the future fee set at £166m.
Furthermore, the duo's wages are also understood to be costing PSG approximately £35m per year.
European clubs face disciplinary action if they make losses of more than €30m (£26m) over a three year period.
Sanctions - which would be decided no earlier than June - could include a large fine or even a ban from appearing in the Champions League, should PSG be found guilty.
PSG - who are owned by the state-funded Qatar Sports Investments - have previous for breaching FFP rules, having been fined €60m in 2014.
In response to these reports, the club released a statement: "Paris Saint-Germain finds it deplorable that, only a few days before a regular meeting scheduled with UEFA, false information targeting the club has been reported in the British press.
"Paris Saint-Germain reminds the media that the club has been closely monitored by UEFA for four years following the settlement signed by both parties in 2014.
"As a result of this, the European body has a very clear and transparent view of the club's financial status, especially with regards to multi-year contracts with club partners.
"Paris Saint-Germain is in continuous communication with UEFA and the club will go to UEFA as usual in full transparency on April 20."
They are currently top of Ligue 1, and will win the title if they beat second-placed Monaco on Sunday.
