Manchester City risk a season-long champions League ban

Manchester City could be banned from the Champions League for one year if they are found guilty of breaking financial rules.

The final verdict of their position currently lies in the hand of Yves Leterme who is the Chief Investigator.

It has been revealed that several colleagues of the body have stood firm to the decision of a season-long ban as an appropriate punishment of the 2018/2019 Premier league winners.

Reports indicate that Manchester City could have broken Financial Fair Play regulations by inflating the value of multimillion pound sponsorship deal.

In 2014 Pep Guardiola’s side was fined £49m for a similar breach of financial regulations as they claim innocence of the act.

UEFA has remained silent on their ongoing investigation as they wait for a conclusive report from Yves Leterme in the next 48 hours.
