Premier League prepared to dock points from Man City; deliver transfer ban


Premier League chiefs will consider docking Manchester City points over claims of Financial Fair Play breaches.

The Daily Mail says City are facing a three-pronged investigation by the Premier League which could lead to further sanctions on top of the two-year Champions League ban imposed by UEFA.

The League began looking into City’s accounting and recruitment practices almost a year ago in the wake of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play probe, which resulted in City being given a two-year ban and a £24.9million fine.

The Premier League have been working with law firm Bird & Bird to gather evidence of City’s accounting in an investigation which is being run independently of the other clubs, who will have no influence over whether they will face charges.

Potential sanctions would include a fine, a transfer embargo or a points deduction. Stripping the club of previous titles is extremely unlikely.
