Manchester City have been one of the most dominant teams in the European circuit over the recent years. The Sky Blues have been the strongest in England as they won their fourth consecutive league title and this was their 6th title under Pep Guardiola in seven years. This shows their dominance in England over the recent few years. However, there has been a tension that is been circulated over the news about their 115 charges. 

The club have been charged with 115 charges of financial breaches against the club. Steps need to be taken before any punishment can be issued. They have been accused of gaining an unfair advantage over other City Football Group-owned clubs, and the repercussions could be problematic for the club. The focus on the Sky Blues has gained light in recent times after Nottingham Forest and Everton were docked points for failing to meet the division's Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR). 

Amidst all the speculations Everton’s former chief Keith Wyness has claimed “leaks” about Pep Guardiola’s future are linked to these charges. The 66-year-old stated that the Spaniard's exit may have been staged to avoid an unpleasant scenario if the club is proven guilty. There have been reports that the 53-year-old manager is planning to leave the club after his contract expires next season. 

This is a really interesting situation with this leak now coming out: Keith Wyness

Wyness told Football Insider‘s Insider Track podcast, "This is a really interesting situation with this leak now coming out. Join the Football Insider WhatsApp channel to get all our exclusives and the breaking transfer news FIRST. You’ve got to believe it is somehow linked with these 115 charges. I have no idea whether Man City are guilty or not."

"I’m not making any statements about guilt, but Guardiola has said that he would go if they were found guilty. It appears to be a planned separation between the manager and the club, and that makes sense from a PR perspective for him to leave before the verdict comes – so it doesn’t look like he’s being forced out."
