Man Utd propose Premier League spending rules

Manchester United are the driving force behind proposals which would limit the spending power of Premier League clubs, the Daily Mail has reported.



Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan believes however that the Old Trafford outfit’s decision to push the agenda is in part motivated by a desire to reign in their neighbours Manchester City, who beat United to last season’s title by a slim margin and have spent a small fortune since being taken over my Sheikh Mansour in 2009.


Whelan, who is in favour of the idea - as the majority of Premier League clubs were when the suggestion was floated in June - said: “This proposal has come from Manchester United - I think City have shaken them up a little bit - but I think there should be some controls on spending.” Whelan pointed to the example of Portsmouth - only recently a Premier League side but now in League 1 and under constant threat of liquidation - as an example of why more control is needed.


The Mail adds that United’s proposal is similar to the Financial Fair Play regulations introduced recently by UEFA. United’s chief executive, David Gill, added that not only does the Champions League have such standards, but so does the Championship, so the Premier League has to follow suit.
