It follows an investigation into whether City have gone against the Financial Fair Play regulations of European football's governing body.

The Premier League champions say the accusations are "entirely false" - and the process has been "wholly unsatisfactory, curtailed and hostile".

UEFA is understood to be willing to provide financial support to the FAI of between 8 and 10 million euro to see the FAI through its current governance issues.

Yesterday, the Association said it was shocked at remarks by Siptu that the FAI is in a precarious position
