Manchester City chief executive Ferran Soriano is being investigated for allegedly spying during his time at Barcelona.

The Spaniard, who moved to the Etihad Stadium last August, has been accused of authorising payments to snatch internal emails during his stint as financial vice-president of the Catalan club.

It is understood that the Catalonia Public Prosecutor's Office are investigating the claims, which are also thought to have accused ex-Barca managing director Joan Oliver of criminal liability, according to the Daily Star.

The 45-year-old, who replaced Garry Cook at City, has denied the allegations.
