UEFA can not allow Manchester City to participate in the Champions League as The New York Times reported.

The investigatory chamber of the UEFA on the financial control over the clubs can request the ban of Manchester City in the Champions League. It is expected that Yves Leterme, the Head of the investigation group and ex-Prime Minister of Belgium will strive for the disqualification of the English club at least for one season.

Manchester City is accused of providing false information during the solution of the previous case in 2014. It was about the financial fair-play and the club provided false information about the sum of the sponsors’ agreements. The UEFA has already punished this club for violation of the financial restrictions. Then Manchester City was fined for 49 million pounds, the application for the Champions League was shortened and the restriction for the transfer payments was implemented for two seasons.
