UEFA decide on Manchester United and Man City playing alongside sister clubs in Europe

UEFA decide on Manchester United and Man City playing alongside sister clubs in Europe

UEFA have reportedly come to a decision on Man United and Man City playing in Europe alongside their sister clubs.

UEFA have made a decision on Manchester United and Manchester City being allowed to compete in Europe alongside their sister clubs.

After winning the fourth an unprecedented fourth Premier League title in a row, City will once again be one of the favourites for the Champions League next season.

They will be joined by their fellow CFG (City Football Group) outfit Girona, who finished third in La Liga to qualify for Europe's premier club competition for the first time in their history.

United, meanwhile, have booked a spot in the Europa League as despite an eighth place finish, their FA Cup final triumph over Manchester City means they are in the secondary tournament.

But so too are Ligue One side nice, also owned by Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS.

The pair of Manchester giants have been anxiously waiting for the verdict on whether owning multiple clubs in European club competitions would be a conflict of interests.

L'Equipe reported that UEFA rules stipulated clubs that share owners who control more than 30 per cent of each club to compete in the same competition.

However, Martyn Ziegler of The Times claims that UEFA will allow both teams and their respective sister sides to compete in the same competition.

UEFA's Club Financial Control Board (CFCB) are set to announce a ruling on Monday and it how it will affect City and United.

The green light is poised to be giving pending certain conditions being met, specifically Girona and Nice's operations taking place through a “blind trust”.

The same approach happened with AC Milan and Toulouse, who were both admitted into Europe last term.

They are both owned by American investment fund Bird Capital but major changes were made to ensure that there were differences in the structure of the two teams.

Clubs will be told that the rules may change going forward after the 2024/25 campaign as the reported call is deemed to be a "temporary alternative".
