Manchester City are in line for "significant penalties" as a result of the 115 Financial Fair Play and Profit & Sustanability Rules charges hanging over their heads from the Premier League. That is the view of football finance expert Dr Dan Plumley.

City claimed their fourth straight Premier League title in 2023/24, beating Arsenal to the crown by two points. It was the second season in a row the Gunners have finished just behind Pep Guardiola's men.

There have been plenty of questions surrounding City's title triumphs, in lieu of the charges against them and what could happen if they are found guilty of any or all of the breaches.

Some have suggested points deductions and relegation fm the Premier League, while others have called for them to be stripped of their titles, which could, in turn, lead to Arsenal picking up a couple of title wins after the event.

Speaking to instantcasinos.com, Plumley said it would not be out of the question for City to be relegated. He said: "I don’t think the rumoured penalties of Manchester City facing expulsion or relegation from the Premier League are sensationalised at all.

"Given the number and nature of allegations, if any of them are proven, then we could see significant penalties imposed on them.

"I don’t think we’ll get a verdict until 2025 with a hearing scheduled for autumn, but from the Premier League’s point of view I think they’d like a resolution before the end of next season. If there is a punishment, then the authorities would likely want it to be delivered at the start of the 2025/26 season, so I get the feeling that the summer of 2025 will be an important time for this process."

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has been quiet on the subject since the charges were brought and he was at Arsenal on the final day of the season, rather than at the Eithad Stadium, where City lifted a historic fourth consecutive title.
