To stay on top any team needs improving with new players, so unless they have good youngsters to join in the first team, a transfer ban will have its effect.



It will have an effect, because City are always trying to buy the best players and become better to win all they can.

A 2 window transfer ban is a year basically, City have by far the strongest squad in the PL, their squad none starters would probably get a top 4 place, with players like Mahrez/Stones/Silva etc, they need to replace some key players like Kompany & Fernandino, but they have more than enough now to cover them.

They also have an impressive youth team setup, so far players like Sancho have had to leave as they could not break through into the first team, he's now valued at £100 million! players like Foden, Diaz & Nmecha may get get games, in an odd way it could be good for City.

If they get a significant competition ban, say from Uefa competitions for 5 years, that would impact them, as the top players want to join clubs who will compete in the CL, some top players like Aguero/De Bruyne may want to leave to play in CL, but who else would/could afford their wages and City do not have to sell, they can leave any player they want to rot in their reserves ro prove a point, look at the money Yaya Toure was on and how he was frozen out.

City will fight any bans, they have the means to tangle Uefa etc in court for years, especially with how this evidence has been acquired, with hacking and theft reported, so will be interesting to see how this pans out.

Whilst we potentially rue what could have been this season, we do potentially have something to look forward to when the first of these regulatory authorities decide what to do with Man City.

Every grey cloud has a silver lining and hopefully we get to go to battle next season with some exciting additions whilst the likes of Man City and Chelsea have to make do with what they already have...maybe in Chelsea's case without Hazard?

I predict they’ll do nothing with City due to a few quite large brown envelopes.

FIFA, UEFA, The Premier League and The FA have all got separate investigations going on into Man City. Then you have a band of at least 12 Premier League Clubs all banging the drum about their unfair practices, I cannot see how this ends well for City otherwise there'll be a mutiny. At the very least a transfer embargo should be in place until investigations have been concluded similar to Chelsea whose actions pale against what City are accused of.

That’ll be 16 envelopes then grin

They should be done if they’ve broken the rules but we’ve all seen that those rules are rarely upheld for the money clubs.

The most they will get is a transfer ban, they have so many players that will not really affect them, they also have this as a heads up, so they can buy now in preparation..... Chelsea never really got this heads up ...... odd that ......

Yes. Four for the bodies and twelve to get the other teams to keep quiet. Simple maths really.

Perhaps City already sent 7 out to the other teams in the PL.
