Loads of Manchester City fans have been reacting to a report claiming UEFA will introduce a new “luxury tax” to European football.
According to The Daily Mail, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin is considering introducing a tax on the spending of big clubs.
The tax would effectively mean owners can subsidise their club’s transfer budget to splash out on stars, but must also put an identical amount into a pot for rival clubs.
For example, if Sheikh Mansour were to give Pep Guardiola £100m to sign Matthijs de Ligt, he would also have to put £100m into a communal pot to be redistributed to their opponents.
The plan is of course designed to ease up the FFP restrictions, allowing clubs to bring in big superstars, while also levelling the playing field a bit.
City fans though, aren’t too happy with the proposed idea, seeing it as yet another ploy from UEFA to limit their success.
The Cityzens will be investigated for alleged breaches of FFP, something Ceferin also detailed in the interview.
