Roberto Mancini had two contracts while manager of Manchester City as he was also paid via the club Sheikh Mansour owns in Abu Dhabi.

On signing for the club, Mancini allegedly not only agreed an annual salary there but also a further, more lucrative basic deal as a consultant with Al Jazira Sports and Cultural Club, which is controlled by City’s owner.

Mancini agreed a £1.45 million annual salary with City when he joined in 2009, plus bonuses and incentives, but also – according to the allegations – agreed a £1.75 million salary with Al Jazira.

In 2014, City were fined £20 million by Uefa for breaking FFP regulations after the club was found to have overvalued sponsorship deals provided by companies associated with Abu Dhabi’s ruling family.
