Rival clubs ‘want Man City relegated’ if found guilty of financial breaches
Premier League clubs reportedly want to see Manchester City removed from the league entirely if they are found guilty of financial breaches by an independent commission.
City could yet be found guilty of 100-plus breaches of Financial Fair Play rules following a probe into their affairs that lasted four years, which they deny.
The probe relates to the period between 2009 and 2018 in which City won six Premier League titles, with league chiefs publishing a statement on Monday morning.

A City source is quoted as saying by The Mirror: "The Premier League have spent the last four years on this issue – and still managed to make mistakes in the statement."
Barrister Murray Rosen KC has been appointed as the chair of the independent commission.
