It has been revealed that Manchester City are being investigated for possibly breaching Financial Fair Play regulations.

This season they have been investigated by the Premier League, Uefa, Fifa - over allegations they broke third-party ownership rules - and the Football Association, over the claims relating to a payment to Sancho's agent.

"I know exactly what the guys are doing for the last two seasons and more and that is what remains my feelings. I trust a lot what the cub has done, because I know them and hopefully they can solve it as soon as possible". "When we do it [win trophies] it belongs to us and nobody is going to change that".

"We are now investigating these matters and will allow Manchester City every opportunity to explain the context and detail surrounding them".

Guardiola, who won the Premier League last season and defended his Carabao Cup title in February, said he has no concerns his achievements at City would be tainted by the allegations.

The FA is investigating allegations that, when City signed Sancho from Watford in 2015 when the England winger was just 14, they concealed a £200,000 payment to the player's agent, Emeka Obasi, as a contract for him to scout players from South and Central America.

On Friday the Premier League confirmed it had a probe into City under way.

Sancho, who is now an England global, left City for Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

City manager Pep Guardiola has hit out, saying that they are concentrating on the pitch.

City were punished by UEFA in 2014 for breaching FFP regulations, but the new allegations have largely come from German magazine Der Spiegel.

Der Spiegel has published a series of claims, based on leaked documents, that league champions City have violated FFP rules.

City issued a firm denial on the matter yesterday claiming that any accusations of financial irregularities were "entirely false".

Speaking at a press conference to preview Saturday's game against Watford, expressed confidence in the club and urged authorities to deal with the matters quickly.

Yves Leterme, UEFA's club financial control body chairman, previously said City face "the heaviest punishment - exclusion from UEFA competitions" if they are found guilty.
