Premier League chaos predicted over Man City's 115 charges as Arsenal and Chelsea watch on

Manchester City face a total of 115 charges from the Premier League

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has predicted a Premier League uproar over the ongoing investigation into Manchester City's alleged financial breaches, with frustration growing over the situation.

City are currently leading the title race, with a game in hand giving them an advantage over Arsenal in a two-way battle, despite facing 115 charges from the Premier League since February last year. An independent commission is due to review the case later this year, after the current season concludes.

The decision on the case may not be reached until next year, causing growing frustration among other Premier League clubs, notably Everton and Nottingham Forest, who have both been penalised with point deductions this season for breaching profitability and sustainability rules.

With the number of charges against City reaching triple digits, potential penalties could include expulsion from the Premier League, possibly even relegation to lower divisions. Despite these serious allegations, the club maintains its innocence and has pledged to contest the charges.

This stalemate has prompted Rio Ferdinand, now a pundit for TNT Sports, to question the prolonged nature of the proceedings. Speaking on his FIVE podcast, he suggested there would be an uproar if City were to avoid punishment.

"When is this going to get sorted out? " he asked. "Because everybody else's cases seem to be getting sorted out mighty, mighty quick. Everton have had two dockings this season already this season.

"Nottingham Forest, all these teams are getting docked points. Manchester City's are just... [pretends to thumb through pages]."

The former Leeds and West Ham defender continued: "If I was those clubs, I'd be like, 'let's see what happens with City first'. But if they get nothing or a little slap on the list, I can see them going nuts.

"When I went to a court case about racism a few months ago, he had one charge. It took two-and-a-half years! They've got 115, it's nuts! "

Premier League CEO Richard Masters recently addressed the situation. Speaking at the European Leagues general assembly, he remarked: "Obviously we can't comment on the case, the date has been set and the case will resolve itself at some point in the near future, and I cannot make any further comment on it."
