Man City are still waiting to hear the outcome of the 115 charges

Manchester City’s chiefs have made contact with Pep Guardiola following new information they have received over their 115 Financial Fair Play charges.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has previously stated that the outcome of City’s charges will be revealed in 2025.

“It’s eight years, will be nine. Right now my feeling is I want to stay next season. We talked with the club, we have time to talk next season because I have to see the players as well, if they follow me, they follow us.

“I want to stay next season. During the season, we will talk. But after eight, nine years…”
