City, who reclaimed their title of English champions from Liverpool last season, have been under separate investigations for two years from UEFA and the Premier League, with the UEFA investigation initially handing a two-year European ban on City Football Group-owned club as well as a €30m fine.

Manchester City have been accused of using a number of tactics to delay an investigation into its financial affairs relating to alleged breaches of Financial Fair Play regulations.

The latest drama has arisen after Off the Pitch reported that Premier League lawyers working on the investigation have accused City of using 'delaying tactics'.

The Premier League continued with its own investigation into City's alleged breaches of FFP, which had first come to light through allegations made in German newspaper Der Spiegel in 2018 that claimed the Premier League champions had subverted FFP rules by inflating the revenues received from sponsorship, something which the club denied.

That judgement was quashed upon appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) by City, with CAS citing that there was not enough evidence, although City were handed a €10m fine for lack of compliance with the investigation.

But the Premier League issued a disciplinary complaint against the club in August of 2019, seeking disclosure of certain documents and information, and appointed a commission to hear the complaint and a row has rumbled on since.

City appealed to a commercial court over the matter, but in the meantime the Premier League continued with their case, trying to force City to hand over documents and information.
