Chelsea sold Hazard, Morata and Luiz for 180m. They may sell Abraham for 50m aswell so they balanced their books. Utd earn more sponsorship money than us so they can spend more. City sponsors come from the prince of uae and his siblings who pretty much own the club so its obviously inflated. We sold 3 players for 30m and purchased 1 for 36m. So in reality every club is following ffp just using different methods.

Indeed, all clubs have to find a way to follow FFP rules though they have been relaxed in the Covid seasons, I think Chelsea is taking advantage of that to buy players though and I can't see Abraham going for 50m

Either FFP is the rules or its not. If it is it must be enforceable and the FA are entitled to see the relevant documentation.

Manchester City are withholding evidence that is the point of the thread not who can afford what

If they ate entitled to the relevant documentation, then it shouldn't be difficult to enforce, no? That said, FFP is more a UEFA thing, not really FA, I am not too sure. For info, City are going for Grealish for 100m and then apparently for Kane, maybe for even more. So don't know where FFP fits in

Chelsea also spun..king money, left, right and center.

Our aspirations are getting far fetched...you can't compete with that level of spending, when there seems nobody in the authorities are willing to level the playing field.


And didn't city have losses of £120M last season?add that to the £250m they could be spending on 2 players.Football is a joke tbh.

Thatís the point it is difficult to enforce with city employing a battery of lawyers to prevent release and appealing against judges decision worth reading the article
