The coronavirus outbreak has led to the suspension of business at CAS with Manchester City and UEFA warned of an inevitable backlog when the court resumes.

Not that anyone has the first clue when that will be; even UEFA.No matter, because the grasping Premier League clubs want City out anyway.



The letter presumes City have been seeking to delay the process in order to gain entry next season.



Why? Well, the wider world may not agree, but Manchester City's executives think they will win at CAS. Their view is that a drawn-out process, one that dragged through the summer, would make it hard to plan for next season.

What could they tell players about the short-term future, what project could they sell to transfer targets? City did not drag their feet submitting the appeal at all.

Of course, if CAS simply couldn't deal with the legal challenge in time for the next Champions League campaign circumstances may change.

It is unlikely UEFA would be happy excluding City from Europe before an appeal is heard, either, as it could lead to a substantial legal claim for loss of earnings if CAS did not side with the governing body.
