Premier League has confirmed they are looking into a number of allegations at Manchester City.
City are already being investigated by UEFA for alleged breaching of Financial Fairplay (FFP) and now are the subject of a fresh investigation. Financial irregularities, academy player recruitment and third party ownership-these are the main accusations that the English football authorities will be dealing with.
Premier League has told the club to submit necessary documents in a bid to help them with the investigation. An official statement read : “The Premier League has previously contacted Manchester City to request information regarding recent allegations and is in ongoing dialogue with the club.
“The League has detailed financial regulations and strong rules in the areas of Academy player recruitment and third-party ownership.
“We are currently investigating these matters and will allow Manchester City every opportunity to explain the context and detail surrounding them.”
City have maintained their ignorance since being accused of breaching financial regularities and are likely to maintain the stance as of now. The Sky Blues are also under a FIFA investigation as football’s governing body is looking into a possible infringement of third party ownership rules.
