    For breaching simple money rules

    Yes and they are totally fvcked too.The top players will leave along with Guardiola and MC will be a totally different team next year.

    UEFA has set the penalty high and MC know this and have to appeal to get at least 1 season back, but i am not holding my breath

  • Violated UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations. There are strict rules in place that clubs must be financially viable (they can't spend more than they take in, and they used money from their owners (which is illegal) and claimed it was sponsorship money when it wasn't). The rule is meant to keep clubs from spending beyond their means (by what they bring in as revenue).

    From the BBC:

    Clubs need to balance football-related expenditure - transfers and wages - with television and ticket income, plus revenues raised by their commercial departments. Money spent on stadiums, training facilities, youth development or community projects is exempt. (end quote)

    City (if you believe the reporting from German publication 'Der Spiegel' and UEFA) violated this. City have already been found guilty previously and were fined GBP49mm back in 2014. This would be their second violation.

    This has been in the works for some time (UEFA's investigation). The Premier League can (and most likely will) also punish them. They could deduct points which would make champions league qualification impossible, or they could be relegated (this happened in Scotland with Rangers) down to the Championship or even League 1 or League 2.

    A 2-year ban AND relegation is a tough (but fair) penalty. They would most likely win promotion but without Champions League money it would limit their ability to buy new players for years to come.
