As you may have already known, UEFA have dropped “the Citizens” out of the main club tournament for two seasons. They have also been fined € 30m for breaching the Financial Fair Play between 2012 and 2016. But according to the latest reports, Manchester City may temporarily avoid the disqualification in one case.
It was expected that City would disagree with the sentence and appealed to the Arbitration Court in Lausanne.
According to the latest reports by Daily Mail, Manchester City have a chance to postpone their disqualification for one season before the official announcement of the verdict. If the court’s final decision on the matter is not announced by June 1, then the club will be able to request a temporary suspension of disqualification.
So it is possible that Manchester City will take part in the Champions League in the 2020/21 season.
The owners of Manchester City are buying another club
According to the latest reports, Holding City Football Group, which owns Manchester City, is going to buy another football club. As L’Equipe writes, Arab officials want to buy Nancy who play in the French Ligue 2.
The company has reportedly been studying the potential acquisition for several months. Negotiations are still underway, but the parties are close to successfully completing the deal. The financial side of the deal still remains secret.
In addition to City, the City Football Group owns New York City (USA), Melbourne City (Australia), Girona (Spain), and many other football clubs around the world.
The main goal of the leadership of “citizens” is to buy Nancy in order to strengthen their position and influence on football at the European level. If nothing changes and the talks does not fail suddenly, Nancy will become a member of the City Football Group.
