Their owners are very much of the opinion that money buys you absolutely everything ( having never earned it it’s not surprising they have such an approach )They will appeal. Wouldn't hold much hope that 5th gets CL.
From what i can see on wiki, they were excluded from this years Europa League and Torino got a place as a result.Did AC Milan overturn this in the end https://bitterandblue.sbnation.com/2019/6/28/19102535/epl-2018-19-season-ac-milan-banned-from-europe-are-manchester-city-next or did they miss out on Europe , so maybe 5th will be good enough.
PS. According to the report on AC Milan even if City lost the appeal their place might go to another country, sure this story will go on to the bitter end. City are guilty and everyone knows it.
