On Friday, UEFA sent shockwaves throughout the footballing fraternity when it was confirmed that City had been banned from the Champions League for two seasons following a breach in Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations. 

Following the European football governing body's decision, it now appears likely that the Premier League will conduct its own investigation into the reigning champions' finances, and could impose punishment as extreme as relegating the club to League Two.

That's according to the Daily Express, who report that clubs need to provide financial information that matches the information supplied to UEFA in order to obtain a Premier League licence.

Should Pep Guardiola's side be found to have breached the EPL's own FFP regulations, the club could be handed a points deduction or face relegation, with a recent report by The Independent confirming that expelled clubs must 'start over' in League Two.

While that appears unlikely, the Citizens, who have been accused of misleading UEFA over the value of a sponsorship deal in order to comply with FFP rules, have confirmed that they will be escalating the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
