Manchester City 'will have to pay cut-price £65m to land Kalidou Koulibaly'

City couldn't have taken part in Champions League or the Europa league for two years if CAS hadn't ruled in their favour.

As the surprise judgement continues to rumble on, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham's Jose Mourinho both publicly disagreed with verdict, Klopp stating it was "not a good day for football" and that Financial Fair Play was "a good idea and it is there to protect teams and the competition".

Klopp also led Liverpool to the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup this season.

There are two more Europa League qualification spots reserved for English clubs, but they may not necessarily go to Premier League representatives. I am incredibly happy for the decision.

After Manchester City's UEFA Champions League ban was overturned this week, the club's bosses have reportedly given Pep Guardiola a massive €170 million transfer budget, and the manager is said to have 11 names on his wish list.

"City will be in the Champions League next season because the CAS did things badly, not because City have done things properly", he added. Don't go from behind whisper, seven, eight, nine clubs - go and do it on the pitch. Fictitious sponsors, naming rights (for stadiums) in the case of Man City.

"People can not understand how hard it was for everyone as a club being under suspicion".

"He has chose to leave, he has said many times".

They've got a huge opportunity to win it this year, with the reduced nature of the competition making it a series of one-off games at a neutral venue.

"If we did something wrong, we will accept the decision".

The CAS ruling may even help Liverpool in their Premier League title defence, because City will not benefit from free midweeks between domestic games.

"We can spend as much money as our chairman or our owners want, but always, always in the Financial Fair Play rules and we show it, we were there". All the clubs, if you want to be on top, all the clubs (spend); if you don't, it's more hard, " Guardiola explained according to Mirror.

"I would like to see the CAS's final resolution". We have incredible people working in this club to make our fans proud.

'At the moment, I still have a three-year contract and I am not thinking of anything else but Napoli'. One year for a manager is a long, long time.

Securing a place in the Champions League or Europa League brings considerable financial rewards to teams thanks to the associated participation money and sponsorship boosts.
