Manchester City is prepared to know their fate on Champions League ban on July 13, according to report in The Sun.
Manchester City has been charged for breaking the financial fair play rules (FFP) and also misleading the European governing body.
The club directors have been in a legal battle with UEFA in a bid for the European body to overturn the verdict, They appealed the decision and submitted their case over a three-day period to the Court of Arbitration for Sport last month.
CAS will assess their case and make their final verdict on July 13, as per the Daily Mail. If Manchester City is banned from the competition t will have a major impact on the morale of his squad, who will want to play on the biggest stage of all.
The likes of Manchester City will also be keeping a close eye on the final decision with the prospect of the Premier League’s fifth-place finishers securing a Champions League spot.
The investigation was initiated after German magazine Der Spiegel “leaked” emails and documents in November 2018.
They appeared to provide evidence that Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the Abu Dhabi ruling family was mostly funding the £67.5m-a-year sponsorship of the club’s shirts, stadium and academy via his nation’s Etihad airline.
One of the emails leaked claimed that just £8m of that sponsorship in the 2015/16 campaign was funded directly from Etihad.
