More Details

After United won the FA Cup to secure a place in the Europa League and City won the Premier League to guarantee a spot in the Champions League, both Manchester clubs qualified for Europe the next season.

Nonetheless, Girona of La Liga and Nice of Ligue 1 are included in City and United’s multi-club ownership structure. According to UEFA regulations, clubs owned by the same person are not allowed to participate in the same competition..

But the regulations were established prior to the multi-club ownership model becoming more widespread, and Uefa has heard the City and United case. The sibling clubs’ operations do not overlap, as both clubs have emphasised.

For clubs that may violate their regulations, UEFA has proposed a temporary substitute plan that permits them to delegate or transfer responsibilities from the club to an outside entity while the clubs are participating in the same competition.

Nice’s owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, bought a 27.7% share in United in January. The City Football Group is the owner of numerous international teams, such as New York City FC and Girona.

According to reports, Premier League clubs have approved the introduction of a development plan that will curb spending beginning with the 2025–2026 season.

The spending cap proposals were approved by 16 teams, and their goal is to keep the gap between the Premier League’s lower-half teams and its financial titans from growing.

Nevertheless, a report from BBC Sport claims that three teams vying for European football—Manchester United, Manchester City, and Aston Villa—are thought to have voted against the proposal.
