I believe FFP actually has nothing to do with the Premier League. It's strictly a UEFA thing with their continental tournaments.

Have to imagine Pep isn't going to want to stick around when Champs isn't involved either.

DeBruyne and Sterling are by far the two biggest earners on the payroll. Have to think at least one of them are gone.

If DeBruyne hangs around he'll be 31 the next time City can play in the Champions League. Sterling would still be 26 going on 27.

Confirmation that 5th place gets it unless they change the rules:

Quote:
Article 4.08 of UEFA's admission criteria and procedure states: "A club which is not admitted to the competition is replaced by the next best-placed club in the top domestic championship of the same association, provided the new club fulfils the admission criteria."
Also will see if it does get enforced by August when the first round starts.

Yeah, basically they cooked books to be able to spend more on player compensation. Pretty clear and egregious violation of FFP.

Couldn't have happened to a better team.

Agreed.

If this gives 5th place a Champions League spot then I feel A LOT better about Spurs chances now.

If Kevin De Bruyne wants to play CL football next year, he can always give Liverpool call.

Liverpoo are in an enviable spot where they are ubersuccessful but most footy fans don't eagerly want to see them fail.

Make an over-the-top signing like KDB and that changes imo

I look forward to seeing Sheffield United grinding out a victory at the Bernabeu on a Tuesday night

KDB signing makes no sense whatsoever. Allison and VVD were their splash free agents, and arguably that was an all time haul. Why squeeze him into that roster? Where does he fit?

I understand he probably needs to move, but I'm struggling to find a good fit. Maybe Juventus?

KDB fits on literally any team in the world.

I don't like all this KDB talk, but if he has to, just go back to the Bundesliga. The top clubs there have a multitude of attackers that he can feed.

That John Lundstram tap in after a corner kick is going to be the stuff dreams are made of.

I am not doubting his plug and play ness. But I shudder at his transfer fee. I see a team wanting to overpay him to jump into being a UCL front runner.

Plus the Red Sox just gave away Mookie for peanuts. Why spend at least a quarter of the cost of resigning Mookie just for a transfer fee? KDB over what he is replacing is not worth the GDP of most countries. Plus the cost will be even more inflated for being in the same league.

On off note, I wish Bale will finally get cut loose and sign with a mid to upper tier EPL team. (Wolves obviously)

Well there's only one club in the Bundesliga that could buy him, but even Bayern might be a bit unrealistic with what City would likely be demanding.

Real, Barca and PSG are probably the only clubs that could get him.

edit: Although I guess without CL they might be forced to have a little bit of a yard sale, so who knows.
