?Manchester City may have to wait until the end of the season before their Financial Fair Play ruling, with the legal case set up by UEFA due to take months to reach a verdict.

If found guilty, the Citizens could be faced with a potential Champions League ban, but the complex legal case being built is taking longer than initially expected.



They previously paid a settlement of £49m having been found to have broken UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules back in 2014.



It is claimed that the club's owners, the Abu Dhabi United Group, had paid up to £60m as opposed to being paid by the club's airline sponsor, Etihad.

While no set date was confirmed for the ruling,  ?The Times  report that it may take as long as the rest of the season to iron out.
