[Man City lining up new long-term deal for Bernardo Silva] The final stages are concluding for a lot of new contracts with positive news expected soon. We are convinced he is the heir to his midfield namesake David Silva. He’s probably been our best player this season. He has stepped comfortably into the huge void left by Kevin De Bruyne, who has struggled with injury. Bernardo absolutely loves being at City and all the people connected with it, this is one big happy family for him. He has seen some of the other guys pledging their futures and is ready to do the same. Playing for Pep is a dream for him.

[CAS explained Man City’s appeal was not admissible because UEFA has not reached a final decision in the case] The CAS Panel determined that MCFC’s appeal was inadmissible, considering that ‘An appeal against the decision of a federation, association or sports-related body may be filed with CAS … if the Appellant has exhausted the legal remedies available to it prior to the appeal, in accordance with the statutes or regulations of that body.’(Article R47 of the CAS Rules)
In the present case, the decision rendered by the CFCB IC to refer a case to the CFCB AC is not final and can therefore not be appealed to CAS directly, because the AC is competent to take any of the decisions listed in Article 27 CFCB Procedural Rules, that are described as being final

[Man City banned from Champions League for two years and fined €30m] The Adjudicatory Chamber, having considered all the evidence, has found that Manchester City Football Club committed serious breaches of the UEFA Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations by overstating its sponsorship revenue in its accounts and in the break-even information submitted to UEFA between 2012 and 2016.

[Man City banned from Champions League for two years and fined €30m] Manchester City is disappointed but not surprised by today’s announcement by the UEFA Adjudicatory Chamber. The Club has always anticipated the ultimate need to seek out an independent body and process to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence in support of its position.
In December 2018, the UEFA Chief Investigator publicly previewed the outcome and sanction he intended to be delivered to Manchester City, before any investigation had even begun. The subsequent flawed and consistently leaked UEFA process he oversaw has meant that there was little doubt in the result that he would deliver. The Club has formally complained to the UEFA Disciplinary body, a complaint which was validated by a CAS ruling.
Simply put, this is a case initiated by UEFA, prosecuted by UEFA and judged by UEFA. With this prejudicial process now over, the Club will pursue an impartial judgment as quickly as possible and will therefore, in the first instance, commence proceedings with the Court of Arbitration for Sport at the earliest opportunity

Once the Panel has been formally constituted it issues procedural directions, including, inter alia, with respect to the holding of a hearing. Following the hearing, the Panel deliberates and then issues its decision in the form of an Arbitral Award.
