The scandal of the Manchester City after the investigations carried out by the Premier League continues extending. After being accused of maquillar figures, not declaring the whole of the payments to players and trainers and entorpecer the procedures of investigation, the back analyses launch which would have been the sources of finance of the team mancuniano, what could do his even more grave situation.

Like this it has indicated it the expert in finances Kieran Maguire, the one who has offered statements for the 'BBC Sport' explaining part of the situation that at present crosses the team that does life in the Etihad Stadium. In total, the infringements committed by the entity exceed the hundred and each one of them with distinct nuances and interpretations that could carry him to confront a similar case to the of the Juventus in 2006 by the scandal of the 'Calciopoli'.

The indictments to the City

In the first place, the expert has referred to the ocultamiento by part of the entity regarding the main sources of his income, that would have tried 'disguise' like money from the agreements with his sponsors: "First, the indictments that the Manchester City has inflado artificially his income, in particular regarding the commercial agreements and of sponsorship".

However, the subject is not of the all consistent for the patronal English, that sustains that all these monetary injections could have his origin in the owners of the club, rooted in Abu Dhabi, Arab Emirates Joined: "The Premier seems to be affirming that the money in reality came from of the owner of the club, that does not explain for the Fair PlayFinancial , but disguised like an entry of sponsorship, that yes that it does it".

Likewise, it has indicated that the rest of the designations are related with the fact to have maquillado varied of his figures by means of triangulations with other organisations: "The others charges are related with what alleges that the City desinfló artificially the administrative costs when having managers with agreements in other companies connected with the owners so that only they paid a small part of the real cost".

The greater scandal in the history of the Premier?

For Maguire, treats of the greater scandal that has produced in the history of the English football and is possible that there is new charges: "Although the moment is intriguing, the big quantity of charges maybe show why the Premier League has taken so much in arriving here. It is potentially the greater financial scandal of the history of the Premier League. Any club has confronted never to a catalogue of similar charges. If it tests the deception, would be hurtful for the dominant strength of the English football, for his owners of Abu Dabi, for the concept of clubs states and the general idea that it treats of a just competition".

Also it has warned that the investigations could extend more than the planned and has detailed the sanctions to which exposes the Manchester City: "could prolong during months and launch a long shadow of doubts on the Premier League in the process. If the City is guilty, there will be indictments against other clubs. There are boundless possibilities. It could happen anything, from a 'that do not repeat ', a fine, a deduction of points, undress to the City of his titles and even expel it of the Premier League".
