UEFA to reimburse City

Manchester City will be refunded 40million euros from UEFA after complying with sanctions for breaching Financial Fair Play rules.

City were hit with a 60million euros fine, transfer restrictions and forced to name a smaller Champions League squad than usual after being found guilty of breaching the European governing body's regulations in 2014.

Two thirds of the 60million (then £49million) fine, however, was to be surrendered on the condition it could be returned if all operational and financial measures insisted upon by UEFA were met.

Additional criteria City agreed to meet included limiting annual losses to set amounts each year with the purpose of moving towards break-even figures.

This has now been achieved with City even recording profit in the past two financial years.

French side Paris St Germain, who fell foul of regulations in the same year, have also fulfilled their requirements.

A statement from UEFA read: "Manchester City FC (England) and Paris Saint-Germain (France), whose settlement agreements were signed back in May 2014, have fully complied with all the requirements and overall objective of their agreements. Consequently, they have exited the settlement regime."
