Jose Mourinho suspected City 'years ago' amid FFP allegations

Football Leaks: Guardiola signed for Manchester City while coach of Bayern

Guardiola was also lured to Manchester by City's resources after great success with Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

That is the strong and unequivocal message coming out of La Liga following the allegations made against the Premier League champions.

A statement from Etihad said: 'The airline's financial obligations, associated with the partnership of the club and the broader City Football Group, have always been, and remain, the sole liability and responsibility of Etihad Airways'.

"What I think about FFP is the same as what the club said on Friday".

Jose Mourinho claims he suspected Manchester City may have been breaching Financial Fair Play rules after allegations emerged against the Sky Blues.

City have subsequently been accused in more leaked documents of an array of attempts to inflate and backdate sponsorship deals to "deceive" UEFA.

"We certainly hope Uefa will take the right decisions and enforce Financial Fair Play rules, but we don't have full confidence that they will".

"Should Uefa fail to act, we will do what we have said before: launch a complaint with European Union competition authorities".

When Chumillas asked his colleague Simon Pearce if they could change the date of payments from the sponsors, Pearce allegedly answered: "Of course, we can do what we want".

The German news magazine claims it has seen internal documents which show that City officials discussed how to wipe out a £9.9m shortfall in 2013.

Allegations In the latest allegations to plunge City into turmoil, it is alleged a risk analysis regarding a possible deal with Arabtec was carried out by executives but that, despite the report concluding a partnership with the company would have "significant potential to damage the perception and standing of the club and its owners", the club struck an agreement regardless, signing a regional contract that would be publicised only in Arab states, Russian Federation and Turkey, where there was considered to be less risk of condemnation. According to Der Spiegel, City avoided a possible suspension from the Champions League over the matter after exerting intense legal pressure on Uefa. "UEFA FFP compliance WILL NOT be achieved".

Vicky Kloss, a spokeswoman for City, is said to have sent an email to team executives warning against the deal.

It is not the first time that Manchester City have been called out by the Football Leaks reports.

"The Football Leaks documents appear to confirm what we have been saying for years".

Since 2008, City have won three Premier Leagues, an FA Cup and three League Cups, and have spent more than £1.4bn on players.
