Manchester City will not be forced to sell star players if a two-year ban is applied to the Champions League
“There is no need for a fire sale”: Manchester City will not be forced to sell star players if the two-year ban on the Champions League continues … and the ruling can benefit the club financially
- Kieran Maguire, an expert in the field of football finance, says that Manchester City will keep the men from the star
- FFP loss limits under UEFA amount to € 30 million over three years, compared to £ 105 million in PL
- As a result, City may have more financial breathing room to sign players
Manchester City will not be forced to fire their top players if a two-year Champions League ban remains in force and could even benefit financially from their time outside of Europe, according to a top football financier.
City, who appeals against UEFA’s judgment at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, loses tens of millions of revenues for every non-competitive season.
Manager Pep Guardiola and CEO Ferran Soriano are both convinced that City will be in the Champions League again next season.

And it is claimed that working with different Financial Fair Play rules in the Premier League eliminates the need to sell players. “No fireplace is needed,” said Kieran Maguire of the University of Liverpool Sportsmail.
“They will actually benefit from not being in Europe because the FFP limits under UEFA are € 30 million losses over three years, compared to £ 105 million under the Premier League limits.”
Meanwhile, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has given up hope of winning City’s 2014 title after his Liverpool side finished in second place.
He said: “It is really gone. It doesn’t change anything. It does not take away from what we did. “
