UEFA’s investigators want City to be banned from Europe’s premier competition for a year, for allegedly breaking financial rules.
City argue that a biased process has not been conducted properly by the ruling body, but it has been reported that their appeals may not stop a ban.
However, it is understood that City’s claims have no effect in terms of stopping UEFA’s decision and a sanction could be imposed in the coming weeks.
“There is no stay on UEFA while the CAS proceedings are in progress,” a spokeswoman for the Adjudicatory Chamber of UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body said.
CAS last week announced they had received City’s appeal and are studying written submissions from both sides – UEFA and Manchester City.
