This weekend marked the conclusion of the English Premier League, German Bundesliga, and French Ligue 1 seasons, with Manchester City, Bayer Leverkusen, and Paris Saint-Germain claiming their respective titles. Manchester City made history with their fourth consecutive league title despite Arsenal's efforts. Liverpool's farewell to Jurgen Klopp was highlighted by a 2-0 victory over Wolves at Anfield. Meanwhile, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund prepared for their UEFA Champions League final in contrasting styles, and Juventus parted ways with manager Max Allegri following a Coppa Italia win. Future uncertainties loom for Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea and Erik Ten Hag at Manchester United.

By the Numbers
  • Manchester City's Phil Foden scored 19 league goals, ranking behind only Erling Haaland (20) and Ollie Watkins (19).
  • Rodri contributed nine assists in the league, along with 19 goals over the last three seasons.
Yes, But

Despite Man City's dominance, critics point to the 115 charges of financial misconduct facing the club, which, if proven, could tarnish their achievements and lead to severe penalties.

State of Play
  • Manchester City continues to be dominant, with emerging talents like Foden and Rodri stepping up.
  • Juventus aims to move forward with Paolo Montero as interim manager while looking for a new long-term leader.
What's Next

Liverpool will need to find a suitable replacement for Jurgen Klopp, potentially redefining their club identity. Manchester City, with their young talents, could become even stronger. The legal situation surrounding their financial charges remains essential to monitor.

Bottom Line

Manchester City’s unparalleled success under Pep Guardiola is a milestone for the club and the Premier League. However, the shadow of financial allegations could impact their legacy and future developments significantly, making the upcoming decisions and outcomes crucial for the club's future.
