The investigation, which is likely to affect the period from 2012 to 2016; could lead to the removal of points that could lead to the loss of the Premier League title.

According to the Daily Mail, the financial restrictions in the Premier League are less stringent than UEFA rules.

Earlier in February, it was announced that UEFA would suspend City from participating in European competitions for two seasons for violating financial fair play rules.

The Manchester City press service said that the club would challenge the UEFA verdict in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), noting that the club is “disappointed but not surprised” by such a decision.

Earlier, the Independent reported that Manchester City could be deprived of points or transferred to a lower division.
