Manchester United and Barcelona are among the football clubs that have been penalized by UEFA due to their breaches of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

In accordance with the FFP rules that have now been replaced by new sustainability regulations, the recent round of monitoring has resulted in fines for several clubs. Manchester United have been fined £257,000 for minor break-even deficits, which the club has acknowledged as a technical violation of the previous Financial Fair Play rules. In an official statement, Manchester United expressed their disappointment with the outcome but accepted the fine.

Barcelona, on the other hand, have been fined £428,000 for inaccurately reporting profits on disposal of intangible assets during the 2022 financial period. Similar offenses led to fines of £86,000 for Cypriot side APOEL and Turkish club Konyaspor.

Aside from these clubs, several others have also received fines. Turkish clubs Istanbul Basaksehir and Trabzonspor, as well as Belgian champions Royal Antwerp and Anderlecht, were among the teams penalized by UEFA.

It should be noted that a group of prominent European clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, and Inter, had previously reached settlements with UEFA in September of the previous year. These clubs have met the financial targets set for the 2022 fiscal year and will continue to be monitored for compliance in the upcoming season.

UEFA remains committed to enforcing financial regulations and ensuring the sustainability and fair play in European football.
