Manchester City to face charges for breaking FFP rules

The Premier League has charged Manchester City for more than 100 breaches of its financial rules following a four year investigation.

There are said to be 115 charges dating as far back as 2009. City have been denied the option to appeal any of the sanctions to the Court of Arbitration for sport, the same court that overturned a Champions League ban imposed by UEFA in 2020.

The club have since released a club statement stating that they are ‘surprised by the issuing of these alleged breaches of the Premier League Rules’.

If Manchester City are found guilty the potential sanctions they may face include point deductions, large fines, transfer bans or expulsion from the Premier League.

In May 2022 Pep said he would leave if Manchester City were found guilty of breaching FFP rules.

The final verdict will be pivotal for the direction of Manchester City as well as the reputation of their owners.
