Hard to believe it's even a case. It's blindingly obvious to anyone who wants to look.
I wonder when the details wi be published?
Yes, I completely understand the principle they have applied to cheat, what I am wondering is the actual £££ gap between what’s been reported by Man City and what the actual amount is.They already have really. Der Spiegel set it out quite clearly.
They massively overstate their income by setting up cosy arrangements with companies that sponsor them with £x and the Man City owner gives the company £y so they claim a sponsorship income of £x + £y.
They also massively understate their expenses, mostly wages to players and staff. They claim they pay Guardiola £x and then pay him £y via the Man City owner. So Guardiola actually gets £x + £y.
This enables them to pretend to comply with rules. As and when anyone challenges them from football or government, they just throw dozens of the best lawyers in the world at it threatening to litigate forever. Because nobody can compete with their financial strength, everybody ends up giving in to them or not bothering.
This summer, we're led to believe that they want Kane and Grealish for £200-250m. They could do that easily, without blinking. But they have to put on the facade of pretending that they cannot afford them.
