It has been argued that Manchester City, which is suspected of violating English Premier League financial rules, must hurry to an agreement by reducing points and banning the transfer market.
UK Indica News said: “According to sources, Manchester City have been advised by a top law firm to reach an out-of-court settlement with the Premier League.” “, he said on the 10th (Korean time).
The Premier League released a statement on the 6th and said it had referred Manchester City to an independent committee for more than 100 financial violations. They are accused of violating financial regulations on more than 100 cases between 2009 and 2018.
According to the statement, Manchester City violated UEFA rules regarding club licensing and financial fair play (FFP) between the 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2017-18 seasons. It also violated Premier League rules on revenue and sustainability for the 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, and failed to cooperate with Premier League investigations between the 2018-19 and 2022-23 seasons.
If found guilty, the range of sanctions that Manchester City can receive ranges from fines to points reduction, relegation and up to league expulsion.
The source added, “If you put up a (court) fight, you’re likely to be demoted if you’re found guilty.”
Manchester City are currently in second place with 45 points from 21 matches, five points behind leaders Arsenal.
If 20 points are deducted, it will drop to 12th with 25 points, three points behind 11th-placed Aston Villa.
A two-time ban on the transfer market is also a blow to Manchester City, which is active in strengthening its power, as much as a reduction in points.
