If that's true then we are going to see how serious UEFA are about FFP, with both City (one of the richest owners) and Real Madrid (one of the biggest clubs) on the hook for FFP infringements

Thats not the half of it, given the rebuild of the stadium is going to cost circa EUR1.5b, If UEFA don't look now, then they are missing the biggest corruption of Football ever..

Isco and James are also top class. I don't think we'll get any of them though. But allegedly Klopp loves Asensio. Massive pay packets for all three though.

Maybe this will ultimately save City? If UEFA go in hard on City they have to do so again with Real, which they might be reluctant to do.

That in itself isn't breaking any rules if it's funding infrastructure is it?

So they've signed Jovic for about £60m, Hazard for £88m and some dude from Lyon called Ferland Mendy is about to join for £45m.

Nearly £200m right there. And supposed to be going for Eriksen too.

Thing is they generate nearly 800m euros a season so their spending limit is much higher than most. They can afford to drop 200m fairly easily.

It's harder for City to do so legitimately as their revenue isn't anywhere near that without their bullshit inflated sponsorships and hiding of player wages.

They didn't spend last season did they? They sold Ronaldo and replaced him with Mariano and that was it?

Very interesting summer ahead for them, but in Jovic and Mendy they are getting younger players at least.

I guess they sold Ronaldo for a big wedge. But they did spend last season too. A total of €163.25M according to Wikipedia.

Even with selling Ronaldo for €100m, they still spent a fair bit.

Mendy is a LB but is on his second medical....potential hip issues. They also bought a Brazilian kid called Rodrygo for around £35m and the Porto RB/CB Militao from Brazil for £45m.

They need cash so Bale is high on their list to sell.

They've not spent that much over the last few seasons. Think the summer they bought Bale was the last of the massive splurges. They've also made a fair amount in the transfer market in those years.

Courtois and Vinicious of course and Odriozola. But that's still a fairly low net spend for them I think.

The year before that they spend only 40 million euros on Ceballos and Theo Hernandez and sold players for three times that.

16/17 they bought Morata for 30 million euros.

So for the last three of four years at least, they've been fairly thrifty, they surely can't be in any FFP trouble.

It does if its classified as state aid, (I'm sure also breaks EU rules) I think it has to be on commercial terms also. Could be wrong.
