Appeal will happen but will they lose Pep and players if a ban is still maintained for a period.

I was wondering about Salford when I was at the game Tuesday. Are they managing to stay within the rules?
Crowds of a couple of thousand even when we boost it bu a 1,000 but reported to pay players like Rooney 3 or 4k a week.
They have got Darren Gibson there now too he was playing Premier League a couple seasons back and then went to Sunderland where I guess he was on a decent wage.
We all know they will be well backed by owners but thought rules were related to wages and turnover or have I got that wrong?

That would certainly put 'the cat amongst the pigeons', in City retaining their highly paid overseas players.
Could the Premier League take action?
Uefa's decision is not the only problem facing City just now. The Premier League is also looking closely at the situation and deciding what to do next.
Although the two bodies have different financial fair play rules, they are close enough for there to be a belief that if City have transgressed Uefa's regulations, they have done so with the Premier League too.
Should the league decide to bring a charge, a points deduction cannot be ruled out.
The tricky bit is what the Premier League does now. In theory, it can bring a case. Equally, it may decide it is better to wait until any appeal has been heard by CAS, so it would have a better idea of the likelihood of success.
It is a fascinating situation and one the Premier League clubs have been discussing privately for a while now.
