Manchester City are reportedly confident of keeping hold of their best players despite the prospect of being banned from Europe for the next two seasons.
UEFA announced earlier this year that City would not be able to compete in the Champions League or Europa League during the 2020-21 and 2021-22 campaigns, having been found guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play rules.
Man City remain confident that they will successfully appeal against the suspension, but a group of Premier League teams have reportedly rallied in a bid to urge UEFA to uphold the ban while that appeal takes place.
The uncertainty surrounding City's ability to compete at the top level led to suggestions that a number of key players could look to leave the club, but The Mirror reports that the Premier League champions are confident of keeping their star men.
City were hoping to have their case heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in May, but the coronavirus outbreak could mean that their appeal drags on until later than the summer.
