After several weeks awaiting the resolution, we already have a definitive result. Manchester City will be able to dispute the next editions of the Champions League. This official resolution comes after the claim to the TAS by the English team due to the sanction imposed by UEFA.
The reason, breach the rules of the Financial Fair Play. In this way, the international body imposed a fine of € 30 million in addition to preventing him from playing in European competition for two seasons. The UEFA Club Financial Control Corps (CFCB) Award Chamber made the decision to severely punish the English club, which now sees this sanction come to nothing and it all comes down to a € 10m fine.
A key decision for the transfer market
It should be noted in this regard that over the past few weeks Manchester City had shown its confidence in not being penalized and being able to continue playing in European competitions. This TAS verdict is the result of the hearing held on June 8 and which lasted for three days.
There is no doubt that this decision of the TAS will mark in a more than remarkable way the way in which Manchester City will face the summer transfer market. And it is not the same investment in new pieces with a view to facing only the different domestic competitions that giving a boost to the squad with an eye toward the Champions League.
