Restrictions on City are lifted

Manchester City have had their restrictions on transfer spending and Champions League squad size lifted after meeting their financial fair play target, UEFA has announced.

City were ordered to play in last year's Champions League with only 21 players in the squad and spending on new signings in last summer's transfer window was capped at £49million as punishment for breaching FFP rules. UEFA's club financial control body (CFCB) has announced the lifting of the restrictions for both City and for Paris Saint Germain, who were given the same sanctions last year.
