Man City, the aftermath of a rule violation properly… Transfer market prospects
Manchester City’s current situation is expected to affect the transfer market as well.
The English Premier League (EPL) Secretariat announced in an official statement on the 6th (Korean time) that Manchester City have been charged with numerous violations of the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules. Local media explained that Manchester City had violated the rules more than 100 times, and depending on the results of the investigation, they could be punished with a minimum warning and fine, up to expulsion or relegation from the league.
This could also affect Manchester City’s summer transfer window. Manchester City were planning a major reinforcement in the summer transfer window after the season. At the center is Jude Bellingham, the star of Borussia Dortmund. As other clubs such as Real Madrid and Liverpool are also aiming for Bellingham, the scouting battle is expected to be fierce. However, if Manchester City are punished, it will not be a very attractive option for a player. Man City will be pushed out before even competing for scouting properly. 먹튀검증
The British ‘Telegraph’ said: “Man City have raised quite a bit of money to spend on a summer rebuild by selling players, but the plan could fall through. “Man City are eyeing Bellingham as a long-term replacement for Kevin de Bruyne, but the threat of a points cut or a ban from the Premier League could shatter City’s rebuilding plans.”
City are also looking for replacements for Ilkay Gundogan and Kyle Walker. Gundogan will turn 33 next season, and Walker will turn 33 from next month. It is a story that Manchester City’s plan to find a replacement for the two players in the summer transfer market may also be in vain.
It is not only the recruitment of players that is affected. There will be no reason to hold on to the departing players. Manchester City were worried about Bernardo Silva’s move to leave the team even in the winter transfer window, which was recently closed. João Kan Sellu has been loaned out to Bayern Munich, and his future after his return is uncertain. In this situation, Manchester City seems to have a hard time holding on to players who want to leave the team, including two players due to discipline.
